Weather History

A small tornado left a destructive trial through the Hokitika business area during the early hours of the morning. "It was like the roar of an earthquake". After ripping up property in the main street, the tornado moved southwards. It ripped a garage door off its hinges, broke shop windows and shop signs, while adjacent shops were untouched.
