Driv­ers mak­ing waves

Central Leader - - News -

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.
