New Zealand’s largest city Auckland remains under a state of emergency in the wake of deadly flooding as forecasters warn more severe weather is on the way.
Deadly New Zealand flood crisis spreads
New Zealand’s deadly flood emergency continues after heavy rainfall hit the country’s north island, causing landslides, flash floods and knocking out roads.
Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city of 1.6 million people, remained under a state of emergency on Sunday after it experienced its wettest-ever day on Friday, sparking floods that killed three people.
Another person remained missing, police said on Sunday.
The focus of the emergency has since moved south, with Waitomo District – about 220 kilometres from Auckland – declaring a state of emergency late on Saturday.
