Sending all our love to you. x
To our lovely North Island Flo family,
With the wild weather tearing through the North Island and landing in the middle of Auckland, it's been a scary time for many. Whether you experienced the disruption first-hand or through your loved ones, our hearts go out to you.
We believe it's incredibly important to stay up to date, from weather forecasts to news articles, as well as knowing where to get help if you need it. We've collated some handy links that might be useful:
For news updates, we regularly check Stuff and Newshub. Our Auckland is also a great spot to know more local news for our fellow Aucklanders.
As we all know, the weather can turn at any time! Whether you're at home snuggled up or braving the roads to commute, weather watching is a must! Check Met Service or Weather Watch for the most up to date reports.
