Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:
No current tropical storms.
New Zealand – Less than a week after severe floods caused by Cyclone Debbie, residents of the North Island are preparing for the arrival of another storm system, ex-Tropical Cyclone Cook. An active frontal system has already brought more than 60mm of rain to the northern half of the South Island. This represents almost one month’s worth of rain in a typical April. In the coming hours, Cook’s remnants will make their presence felt across the North Island.
Canada – A series of intense rain storms forced waves further up the beaches near Toronto than seen in decades past. Several old buildings were saved by local residents who built sand and rock berms to protect against the flood waters.
