NIWA is pre­dict­ing a king tide to hit be­tween Fe­bru­ary 1 and 4 and the Auck­land Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to take and share pic­tures as part of a com­mu­nity project aimed at rais­ing aware­ness of ris­ing sea lev­els. A 2011 storm surge oc­curred on a red-alert tide day in Auck­land, flood­ing houses and roads and ex­ceed­ing the pre­vi­ous high­est storm tide in 1936 by 14 cm.
