13 Clive Flood Memorial in Napier, New Zealand

On Good Friday in 1897, the Heretaunga Plains at the south end of Hawke’s Bay was flooded including the town of Clive about six miles from Napier. A team rushed to rescue the 236 trapped residents. Tragically, two of their three boats capsized and ten men were drowned. The Clive Flood Memorial was erected in 1900 on Marine Parade in recognition and appreciation for their valiant actions.
