Tornadoes in New Zealand are highly uncommon, we usually get dust devils and small whirling air currents at most that children play in. A destructive tornado of this magnitude that has killed someone, I cannot ever remember occuring in New Zealand. There has been roof damage and other property damage every few years, nothing of this magnitude. Very, very unusual.
