Before and After the Storm

Last week on the 9th and 10th of July, 2007 Auckland and Northland, of the North Island, NZ..Had Gale force winds, and heavy rain, with flooding.

Where I live on the cliff edge overlooking the Hauraki Gulf, in Whangaparaoa, we were hit with 150-180 kph winds.. that left rather a mess, and uprooted trees and brough down fences and some roofs.
Luckly my house was ok... here are a few photos of before and after the storm, from around the neighbourhood.
