130kmh winds forecast for Wellington

130kmh winds forecast for Wellington | Stuff.co.nz.

If this kind of wind blew in Vancouver, Stanley Park would be leveled. Here, the trees are so accustomed that the damage will probably be limited to a branch here and there.

I’m not keen on it though – the gusts are strong enough that it feels like the car could just sail away. And you need to keep a tight grip on your small children, or they’ll blow off down the street.

    So that’s a breezy day in Wellington? Here it’s beyond violent storm and qualifies for hurricane force status!

      Wellington takes wind to a whole other level! It was strong enough downtown this morning to knock people off their feet, landing even quite large planes was impossible for a while, and the small cross-harbour ferries were cancelled. The news tells me that the strongest gust recorded today in Wellington was 145kmh. Crazy stuff!
