Questions of whether Auckland Council over-reached in response to yesterday's weather after coming under-fire for the January floods.

The city remains in a state of local emergency after torrential downpours burst banks and caused surface flooding.

It saw severe gridlock across the central city, as motorists left work to go home at the weather's peak.

Auckland Business Chamber Chief Executive, Simon Bridges told Mike Hosking while it was serious rainfall, it wasn't as bad as January's, so perspective is needed.

He says the concern is whether we're learning the right lessons from the anniversary floods and not becoming overly trigger happy on declaring a state of emergency.
