New Zealand's North Island Hit By Flash Floods, Landslides
Wellington, 29 Jan (ONA) --- Heavy rainfall hit New Zealand's north island again today, causing landslides, flash floods and knocking out roads, with the number of deaths rising to four.
Battered by rain since Friday, Auckland, New Zealand's largest city of 1.6 million people, remained under a state of emergency.
The nation's weather forecaster, MetService, warned of more severe weather on Sunday and Monday for the north island. Intense rainfall could also cause surface and flash flooding, it said.
