We asked, you delivered: shocking photos of the destruction and trauma visited upon the cats, dogs and trampolines of Auckland overnight.
A largely unheralded storm tore through Auckland last night, downing trees, power lines and much of the city’s electricity grid. Cats were scared, dogs were terrified, and many a trampoline was found up a tree. The Spinoff presents The Aftermath, a photo essay of the damage as submitted by you, our dear readers.
WEATHER PHOTO PSA:
Please send your storm trampoline and storm pet photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
nb strictly only photography featuring trampolines or animals will be considered
