Weather History

A tornado hit Kaihinu, north of Hokitika, during the morning and left a swathe of destruction in its wake. Sheds, fences and moss drying racks were picked up and dashed to pieces, while power lines and trees were brought to the ground. Shards of glass from a conservatory were found embedded in a lawn, some as deep as 15cm.
