Storms and Floods

Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:

In the South Indian Ocean: Tropical cyclone (tc) 09s (Enawo), located approximately 459 nm northwest of St Denis, is tracking southwestward at 08 knots.

Tropical cyclone Enawo slammed into Madagascar on Tuesday, killing three people and displacing hundreds as it buffeted the island with hurricane-force winds and pounding rain.


New Zealand – A key road leading to the Coromandel Peninsula has partially opened this afternoon as the district experiences its worst flooding in 10 years. Several residents have been left homeless after being evacuated due to their homes getting damaged by slips as contractors and emergency services work to clear and repair roads. The rising Kauearanga River earlier cut State Highway 25 into Thames, and debris and floods has blocked the Thames Coast Rd but one lane is now open. In Clevedon, residents watched livestock floating down river in what they call ’worst ever’ floods.
