Last nights storm in Auckland was unlike anything I have ever experienced in NZ.
I’ve never seen wind that powerful.
I’ve never seen a storm creep up the Island and cause tornadoes at the altitude they were.
213km gusts in Auckland?
Never seen this and the incredibly weak response, warnings and total unpreparedness of Auckland Civil Defence the morning after all bode ill for NZ when you consider this type of erratic extreme weather event is now locked into our future from global warming.
This is not what preparedness looks like.
