The roof of Albany Mega Centre has collapsed and people have been evacuated from the building. A witness described to 3 News having seen a body –
believed to be dead – in the carpark of the shopping mall, outside Place Makers.
Just saw this on the news this afternoon.
Looks like a proper Tornado touched down in the middle of a shopping complex in Albany on Aucklands North Shore. Killing at least 1 and throwing cars
about, and collapsing roofs.
Being someone who used to live and grew up on the North Shore and who visited Albany regularly this is kinda scarey, its happened once or twice in the
last few decades but they where nothing but little twisters that ripped roofing iron and chimneys down in localized small areas.
They are also reporting other tornados coming in from Point Chevalier and Avondale supposedly... hopefully no one else has been killed by this as the
Albany mega center would have had alot
of people in it given its after 3pm, ie home from school time.
Freakish weather we've been having...
we had a mini Tornado hit my town in the Waikato only a week ago. Mother nature appears to be ramping it up
all over the world...
