As the storm roared past Auckland to the west on Thursday night and Friday morning it co-incided with a king tide. The strong to gale winds from the northerly quarter also help funnel more water into Auckland Harbour.
The result was a couple of extra tides well above the normal high tide mark.
Most of the below photos were sent in to us by WeatherWatcher Kyle Aitken in Little Shaol Bay, located just over the Harbour Bridge north west of Auckland’s CBD.
