Drivers making waves
Drivers on Mt Albert Rd created a wake in the deep surface flooding caused by heavy rain overnight on Tuesday.
Fire communications shift manager Scott Osmond says there were a few callouts on Wednesday morning, but no major incidents in central Auckland.
“We had a few calls to houses with a bit of roof damage or flooding, but they were in the single figures for Auckland.”
Some highways north of the region were closed but no Auckland roads were shut. The region escaped the worst of the storm which lashed Northland, causing land slips and flooding, before moving down the country.
