Civil Defence is urging Aucklanders to keep up with the latest forecasts after a heavy rain watch was issued for the city on Monday, NZ Herald reports. “The amount of rain isn’t as high as we would usually issue a warning, but you can imagine after the amount of rainfall we’ve seen there since July to August the grounds are really wet,” said MetService metrologist John Law. There are concerns that streams and rivers could rise rapidly, and Auckland and Coromandel residents are also being told to watch out for the deluge.
