Weather History

Strong winds associated with cyclone Yali caused havoc over central New Zealand. A large truck and trailer unit was blown off State Highway 1 near Kaikoura by the force of the winds. The truck's passenger was hurled through the windscreen and landed in a pile of cauliflowers which the truck had been carrying. Both the driver and the passenger escaped serious injury.
