Extreme weather in Auckland damages up to 75 boats

Extreme storm struck the city of Auckland, causing serious damage to Westhaven Marina, boats and property.

According to the local media Newshub, up to 75 boats were damaged at the central marina.


Repairing works will likely cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, Mayor Phil Goff said.


The second night of storms smashed Auckland's waterfront, overturning boats and throwing containers, pylons and cars into the harbour. One of the 75 damaged boats, was a flipped-over 13-tonne catamaran, along with several yachts torn from their moorings.


NZHerald reports, vehicles were swept into the ocean and a yacht was struck by lightning.
