From First Up, 5:47 am on 28 August 2019

"It was a suck, then a push" That's how a Taranaki woman's described being slammed into a wall by a tornado two weeks ago. Maxine Bamford's collarbone was broken in three places, and she won't find out if she'll need surgery on it until mid-September. While recovering at home she spoke to our producer Lydia Batham about the terrifying experience and how she and her family are feel lucky it wasn't worse.
