An Auckland kind of day

Rainy chaos in Auckland

Auckland in the rain and gale, near K Road/Pitt Street somewhere. No power, traffic lights out, banked up traffic for miles with drivers doing u-turns in dangerous places and going on the wrong side of the road, phones not working, internet connections dropping, banks and offices closed, trains not running, hospitals cancelling surgeries and clinics, mobile phone networks overloaded....

Makes you wonder how the city would cope with a real emergency.
