Advice for people affected by today’s moderate flooding in parts of Auckland
Acting Civil Defence Controller, Bryan Cartelle, says if anyone returns home this evening to find their home flooded, they can call the Auckland Council call centre on 09 3010101 (open 24 hours a day) to report the flood. The Council will arrange a site visit and assistance as needed.
Civil Defence is working closely with the NZ Fire Service and has deployed engineers to affected sites where staff are working to unblock drains which have contributed to the flooding.
“Once the drains are unblocked, we expect the flood water to subside naturally says Bryan Cartelle.”
