One Hobsonville family still needs emergency accommodation as a result of the tornado that ripped through Auckland earlier this month, Civil Defence says.

The storm on December 6 damaged 384 properties, 89 seriously.

Fifty have been repaired and the occupants allowed to return.

Another 79 properties will be repaired by the end of January.

A total of 123 needed emergency accommodation - and all but one family have somewhere else to stay.

The tornado killed three construction workers when it ripped through Whenuapai and Hobsonville.
