Bit windy out there

Turns out the folks over at MetService knew something when they put out the severe weather warning for Waikato today. It got a bit windy and one unlucky motorist in the River City got an unwelcomed hug from a roadside tree on Victoria Street, just north of the Fairfield Bridge.

The worst of the weather passed Hamilton in the mid-afternoon, but the road was still closed and the rescue team was still searching for survivors after 7pm.

Fingers crossed the driver has good insurance.

Nerd. Dad. Probably lived in more countries than you. Will stop to stare at nice cars.
