New Zealand has been hit by unprecedented rainfall over the past week, which has been called the “biggest climate event” in the country’s history. An estimated 240 mm (9.8 inches) of rain fell in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, on January 27—an entire summer’s worth of rain—making it the wettest day on record. Widespread flooding and landslides have forced evacuations and four people have died from the extreme weather. On January 30, history authorities issued a “red” warning for more heavy rain—the highest level of extreme weather events—for Auckland and the nearby Northland region in anticipation of up to 120 mm additional rainfall over the next few days.
