Severe Weather and Lightning Strikes

I'm watching the late evening news because I was up at Wendy and Martin's when the 6 O'Clock News was on. One man and his horse were killed today by a lightning strike near Auckland and 6 others were injured - 4 seriously. Without being flippant that must play havoc with the statistics. It has been described as an unusual and freak occurrence. An understatement I would have thought.

At least 5 teenagers have lost their lives in a swollen river this evening.

A severe weather warning has also been issued for Napier and Gisborne. We've had constant and heavy rain for many hours now and the Police are advising people not to make journeys unless they are really necessary.

I think it's time to go home!
