Police will be actively patrolling the areas affected by last night’s flooding in West Auckland this evening and overnight.

Police have been working with Auckland Emergency Management, who are leading the response, as well as other agencies to help those affected by the weather event.

We have assisted some people to leave their properties and want to reassure those people and the wider community that we will maintaining highly visible patrols throughout the night and coming days.

Anyone who feels unsafe or whose property is in danger should call 111.
