Sucking not Blowing

Apparently severe gales are expected in Wellington overnight. Maori are claiming the wind, send the bill for any damage to them.

Gale force winds are expected to batter Wellington and the Wairarapa from this evening.

MetService has issued a severe weather warning ahead of the northwest blast.

Severe gale gusts of 120 kmh are expected in exposed parts of Wellington and Wairarapa tonight and early Sunday morning.

Winds of that strength may damage trees and powerlines, and make driving hazardous.

MetService duty forecaster Ian Gall said the wind in Wellington would rise steadily this afternoon.

“We’ve had quite a blustery start to spring. This bout of wind should be pretty similar to what we’ve seen in recent weeks.”

    Wellington will be safe, the Wind Bag in Chief is out of
    town. Vietnam might not be so lucky.

      Probably your best bet would be Sir Ngatata Love……I understand he has expertise in air, especially that above the Wellington Railway Station & could have a bit of spare cash in his pockets at the moment.
