  3. Winds cause disruptions in Wellington

    Monday October 14, 2013

    The start of the working week was full of disruptions for those in the New Zealand capital, with gale force winds forcing the cancellation of flights, delaying trains and toppling a three-storey scaffold in the city’s centre.

    Wellington’s Willis Street was cordoned off on Monday evening, after the three-storey structure crumbled in damaging winds, crashing on to the street below.

    Gusts of up to 170km/h were recorded at Mt KauKau as a front hit the capital on Monday, with 130km winds sweeping Kelburn and Wellington Airport.

    All regional flights in and out of Wellington were suspended during the morning, with most flights, including those to larger centres, cancelled by the afternoon.

    Air New Zealand cancelled all domestic flights on Monday evening.

    ‘High winds have forced Air New Zealand to suspend all domestic flight operations into and out of Wellington for the rest of this evening,’ the airline said.

    Peak hour commuters also faced delays on train lines on Monday afternoon, with several services disrupted by debris on lines.

    Buses replaced trains between Featherston and Masterton after debris obstructed the track, while commuters on the Kapiti Line also faced delays, with overhead wires hit by debris at Tawa.

    A tree fell across SH54 at Vinegar Hill, reducing it to one lane.

    Earlier, police closed Rimutaka Hill Road because of high winds and advised people to avoid any unnecessary travel.

    A van overturned on the Johnsonville Motorway on Monday afternoon, while a truck was blown over on SH2 in Wairarapa and a campervan was blown onto its side on Summit Road at Little Akaloa.

    In another incident, a man was killed when his truck left the road and went over a bank near Carterton. But emergency services have not confirmed the accident was weather-related.

    Strong winds also blew shipping containers over in Wellington port.

    South Island motorists also faced delays on Monday evening, with several roads closed or dangerous due to flooding.

    MetService said thousands of lightning strikes hit the South Island on Monday.

    About 1000 Orion customers who lost power on Sunday night in Canterbury will have to brace for another night without electricity, with lightning forcing contractors to cease reconnection efforts.

    ‘The threat of lightning strikes has meant that we have to withdraw our linemen from repairs,’ Orion operations manager Stu Kilduff said.

    Winds are expected to ease slightly as they move north on Monday night.

    The front will hit Auckland on Tuesday morning, but the winds are expected to be calmer than experienced in the capital, MetService told AAP.

    extract
    “Some text from the UK Met Office:
    A very intense low pressure system is forecast to run north eastwards across the country early on Monday, bringing the potential for an exceptionally windy spell for southern parts of the UK. At the same time, persistent, heavy rain could cause some surface water flooding, while the winds will lead to some very large waves around our coasts. ”

  5. A report on the Severe storm over parts of the United Kingdom on the 27th Oct 2013

    http://www.skynews.com.au/topstories/article.aspx?id=919222&cid=BP_RSS_TOPSTORIES_3_TravelchaosinBritainasstormhits_281013

    Britain is facing travel chaos and more than 10,000 homes are without electricity in northwestern France as a massive storm sweeps in from the Atlantic Ocean.

    Britain’s national weather centre the Met Office has warned of falling trees, damage to buildings and disruption to power supplies and transport as the storm hit England’s southwest coast on Sunday night.

    Between 20mm and 40mm of rain is predicted to fall within six to nine hours as the storm tracks eastwards across Britain.

    It will be followed by widespread gusts of 97 to 113km/h across southern England and south Wales, with winds reaching more than 130km/h in some areas, forecasters say.

    The Met Office issued an ‘amber’ wind warning for the region, the third highest in a four-level scale, and urged people to delay their Monday morning commute to work to avoid the worst of the bad weather.

    In northwest France more than 10,000 homes were without electricity early on Monday after wind gusts reached 133km/h in some areas knocking down power lines but no major damage or injuries.

    Ferry operators say they have cancelled some cross-Channel services and Irish Sea crossings.

    Meanwhile, the rough conditions led to rescuers abandoning the search for a 14-year-old boy who was washed out to sea from a beach in East Sussex on England’s south coast.
