More records broken for Auckland Airport weather station. Not only has it been the wettest 24 hours on record - its breaking monthly records too. Wettest Jan till now was 1986 with 20cm, wettest month ever July 1998 30cm. Jan 2023 so far 32cm! That's a massive amount of rain.

“It was far too dangerous,” to go on, the crowed were told at Mt Smart Stadium who had braved the conditions to find their sodden seats.

Areas of the city’s north and Ta Arai, close to Northland, are without power.

Susannah Shackel travelled from Wellington to attend the concert, and told Stuff it was “appalling” for it to be cancelled so late.

“We left at about six, we spent $140 on Uber. We get to the gate and they tell us it’s cancelled and to go home,” she said.
