Traveling to New Zealand? You are committing a double act of eco-terrorism.

Extreme weather is about to pummel the West Coast and eastern Canterbury and Otago during the next 48 hours, the wise guys at MetService said.

“The higher suburbs of Dunedin, Otago’s eastern hills and the Canterbury foothills and plains could experience northwest winds, gusting up to 130kmh in exposed areas, said forecaster Allister Gorman.” It was reported.

“These gusts have the potential to damage trees and power lines and will make driving conditions difficult for high-sided vehicles and motorcycles.”

“Up to 130mm of rain could fall over an 18 hour period in Fiordland and the mountain ranges of Westland and Buller from tonight, causing rivers and streams to rise rapidly and flood.”
