  1. EXTRACTS from NZ news

    “Buller Electricity chief executive Erik Westergaard said the company’s entire network, which serviced 4500 customers from Punakaiki to Karamea, was without power this morning.

    Fallen trees had caused ”significant damage” to power lines, he said. ”I’ve never seen this sort of damage to a network. The only thing that could compare to it would be a cyclone or a hurricane.

    ”I don’t think many people outside of the region realise how much damage is over here.”

    ”I’ve lived in Westport all my life and this is the strongest wind I’ve ever seen,” he said.

    ”It was horrific, it was scary and … it was ridiculous. Thankfully we haven’t got anyone seriously hurt.”

    Hundreds of residents rallied yesterday to help those worst affected, Howard said. He was unable to estimate the cost of the damage.

    ”It’s certainly going to add up to be quite a lot.”

    The destruction was likened to a hurricane in Greymouth.

    Strong winds ripped off roofs to about 60 homes in the Grey District, destroyed Blaketown Hall and aircraft hangars at Greymouth airport, and tossed shipping containers at the port onto fishing boats, mayor Tony Kokshoorn said.

    “Yes correct. The coldest was in 1903 at Ranfurly with -25.6°C”
