Hours of continuous heavy rain in Auckland has caused evacuations from flooded homes in the city's West, submerged cars and some roads are awash.

The suburbs of Kumeū, Ranui and Henderson Valley have been particularly hard hit.

Guy Wishart is a resident of Board Crescent  in Kumeū and he's the Chair of the Kumeū Ratepayers Association.

His freshly renovated home has suffered major damage in the deluge.
