After massive rainfall in the middle of the New Zealand summer, large parts of the largest city of Auckland are under water. The citizens of the metropolis on the North Island with 1.6 million inhabitants were asked by civil defense to get to safety.

The National Research Institute NIWA said that in some areas of the city, 80 percent of the rainfall that is otherwise measured all summer fell within 15 hours. The suburbs of Kumeu and Albany were particularly hard hit.
