A band of squally rain has dealt more damage to properties in the Bay of Plenty today – the second time in a fortnight. .
Head weather analyst Philip Duncan says the winds were most likely formed in thunderstorms moving across the area. “With a squall winds can go from just a few kilometres an hour to over 130km/h in a matter of seconds. It’s this sudden wall of wind that can cause damage”.
Yesterday the Weather Watch Centre warned people in coastal areas that damaging wind gusts were possible today. “
