Default Nasty nasty storm.

Well. That little weather bomb cyclone tail 'event' was a bit on the nasty side.

Quite a few homes and roads around here are now 'munted' .

This article contains several photos of the damage

I gather people are trapped over Haast way. That doesn't just mean tourists .

Some farmland pasture is stuffed due to salt water.

All in all. We don't want another one do we. Yet there will be.

Seems these storms always manage to coincide their arrival with king tides :-(
