A day after devastating floods in West Auckland, locals were stepping into recovery mode, Stuff reports. West Auckland received upwards of 150 millimetres of rain between midday Monday and midday Tuesday. All hands are now on deck as business owners clean up mud and silt and check on damaged goods and equipment. Kumeū Business Association chairman Mark Dennis believes Kumeū business owners were mindful of keeping to their bubbles despite the chaos. Piha locals were also aware of Covid protocol, observing social distancing as they cleared a road slip.
