Witness describes moment tornado touches down

Aug 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: Radio News

A Wellington man says he freaked out when a tornado touched down near motel.

Computer instructor, Anthony Horvath, who is working in New Plymouth for the week, says he was checking emails in his room at the Motel 299 when he heard some impressive rolling thunder followed by a roaring sound.

The tornado was one of two that hit the North Island last evening, lifting roofs and levelling fences.

Mr. Horvath says the roaring lasted about 40 seconds, and the power went off and he didn’t know it was a tornado until he started getting notifications on his phone.
