Weather History

Winds gusting up to 133 km/h howled across the South Island from about midday, sparking a spate of fires, felling trees and power poles, and damaging roofs. At Moeraki, two fishing boats and a yacht moored in the bay were blown ashore. Meanwhile, the Haast Pass road was cut in two places by flooding.
