Westland prepares for Gita

From Afternoons, 2:52 pm on 19 February 2018

Severe weather warnings are in place, with ex-tropical Cyclone Gita expected to hit our shores tomorrow. 

The storm caused havoc in Samoa, Tonga and Fiji and is predicted to bring damaging gusts and huge waves.

Heavy rain is forecast to hit Westland, which has only just cleaned up following storm Fehi.

Officials have gathered to devise a plan, we ask Westland's Civil Defence Public Information Officer Andy Thompson about preparations.
