  • 28/01/2023

A drone has captured dramatic footage of west Auckland after disastrous flooding engulfed the area on Friday.

Auckland was put in a state of emergency on Friday night for at least seven days.

Civil Defence says a state of local emergency gives powers to authorities that would otherwise not be available.

Watch the drone footage above.

Watch Newshub on Three or online from 3pm as PM Chris Hipkins and Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown give an update on the flooding response.
