I’ve had a couple of emails from Cill in New Zealand about the crazy weather. He made this request “”Comment” this for me mate in case Kiwis are watching. I get this info before anyone else. (From radio contacts around the coast)” I don;t know how many reading this blog are affected but I’m happy to help pass the word.
Spawny, 9 meter seas, Pam 150 km off East Cape. Official Warning: Expect 160 km winds or more, damage to trees, roofs, 120-200mm rain
Air NZ international flights delayed
Army despatched to E Cape to cope with emergrencies
Civil Defence advice:Aucklanders, people at Whangaparaoa to “work from home” today.
Stay off roads – winds, debris
Reports from my family and friends:
“Waterfall” on Northern Motorway near Albany
Some surface flooding auckland
In NZ, weather always settles down between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. Always happens. False sense of security. Now after 3 p.m. storm in east N Island starting to ratchet it up.
IMHO Worst is still to come
“Comment” this for me mate in case Kiwis are watching. I get this info before anyone else. (From radio contacts around the coast)
More to come.
