New Zealand - Tropical Cyclone Cook

13 Apr 2017

Severe weather will continue in much of New Zealand through April 14 as the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Cook track southeastward across the country. Meteorologists predict the tropical low will bring damaging gales, storm surge, and torrential rainfall to most of North Island and northern and eastern South Island. The potential for flooding and landslides is high, especially in northern and central New Zealand, which remain saturated from the remnants of Cyclone Debbie, which hit April 4-6. Rainfall began in northern North Island the morning of April 12 due to a low-pressure system that arrived prior to the remnants of Cyclone Cook. Cook will make landfall in the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty area around 1800 April 13 and track over central New Zealand overnight April 13-14 before moving offshore southeast of South Island.
