Three people have died in floods in New Zealand.
Prime Minister Chris Hipkins says the severe weather is ‘unprecedented’ with Auckland badly hit by heavy rain and thunderstorms.
Yesterday was the city’s wettest day on record with 240mm of rainfall – which is equal to an entire summer’s worth of rain.
Roads and airports have been affected – with no international flights operating at Auckland today – and no international arrivals until 7am local time on Sunday.
