Strong Winds Rip Roof From Self-Storage Facility in New Zealand


Strong winds and possibly a “mini” tornado ripped off the roof Tuesday at a self-storage facility in New Plymouth, New Zealand.

The roof from Self Storage Taranaki was torn from the building around 9 a.m. It landed along an embankment overlooking a highway, partially blocked the lanes. Police blocked the road from traffic until the roof could be removed. 

A severe weather warning was issued for the region. The weather forecast calls for force winds up to 130 km per hour until midnight.
