Doomsday, more than a hundred thousand lightning bolts in a week in New Zealand

Doomsday, more than a hundred thousand lightning bolts in a week in New Zealand

The greatest damage came from the ruling in Waikana, 50 miles north of the capital, Wellington: two cyclones swept through the area, damaging rooftops, uprooting trees, and causing massive flooding.

On the other hand, South Island ski resort operators can rejoice in heavy snowfall due to the cold front because the snow condition on the ski slopes has not been favorable in June for long. The first ski season in New Zealand since the coronavirus pandemic has now opened. However, in addition to the joy of the skiers, the snow had to close several roads in the mountains and there was a danger of avalanches in several places around the ski slopes.

Cold fronts from the Southern Ocean and the Tasman Sea have been bringing changeable New Zealand weather for days. Between June 6 and 13, the Meteorological Service recorded 111,621 lightning strikes across New Zealand’s islands and surrounding waters.

Wellington residents have been suffering from gale force winds and cold for days. Auckland is also characterized by heavy rains, and the port bridge in the city had to be closed from time to time due to high winds, sometimes with speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour.
