Stacks of produce litter Auckland roadsides

In Auckland, piles of onions washed onto the roads as a result of the floods. Fields with pumpkins, garlic, onions and other crops in Pukekohe were still partly flooded yesterday afternoon, nearly three days after the peak of the storm. Roads and fields were damaged and crops washed into ditches and even residential suburbs.

Onions had been harvested and were drying out ready to go to market just when the floods struck. Tonnes of crops were washed out of fields during the storm in Pukekohe, where onions litter the roadsides. Some people on Monday were scavenging onions at the side of the road.
