Aucklanders warned to brace for tornadoes, thunderstorms and power cuts

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, Vector has warned Auckland residents to prepare for tornadoes, thunderstorms and gales that could lead to power cuts during the next 24 to 36 hours. The company says people should charge their devices and power banks, tie down objects that could be swept up in strong winds, such as BBQs or trampolines, and make sure they had a torch and spare batteries handy, as well as alternative fuel for cooking.

Project to turn Auckland's empty roof space into gardens gets off the ground

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?
