Attribute to a Police spokesperson:
Police are aware that there are lengthy queues forming at supermarkets throughout Tāmaki Makaurau this afternoon.
We will be increasing our visibility at these locations to provide both workers and the public with reassurance.
Police reiterate advice from our partner agencies to remain calm and that there is no need for panic buying.
Evening traffic congestion is also building across the region.
Police remind motorists to drive to the conditions and to allow plenty of time to reach their destinations safely.
