Lightning strikes Peninsula

Homes in Kohekohe-Kariotahi Rd, Pollok and Westhead Rd in Pollok were damaged this morning due to lightning strikes associated with the storm front that moved through the area just before 6 am this morning.

The front moved in from the North West crossing the Tasman before making landfall and moving to the South East. More heavy rainfall and thunderstorm activity as well as the possibility of small tornadoes is likely for the rest of the day before easing tonight. Story by Darren Masters

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
