Flood in Orakei cemetery (Submerged)

More than 150 graves in a cemetery on Tamaki Drive have been submerged. 
A large flood pool surrounds the Okahu Bay Papakainga Urupa, with only the tallest headstones showing above the flood.  Sharon Hawke, of Ngati Whatua Orakei, said shocked family members had turned up at the urupa all morning. Ms Hawke said they would find out why the pump system had not worked well.
