The wet weather is set to continue, with forecasters predicting the rain to stay until at least Thursday.

In the meantime, diligent SunLive readers have been sending in their photos and videos of the flooding in their neck of the woods.

Low-lying Papamoa has fared particularly badly in this bout of rain, although as our previous instalment shows, no one in this usually-sunny city of ours seems to have escaped the weather's wrath.

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
