NZ preparing for perfect storm conditions as TC Cook and a Tasman Sea low set to collide over the whole country which has already been hammered by the remnants of TC Debbie last week.

Can't believe there hasn't been more discussion about this.

http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/cycl...gfYrC&ocid=iehp

Heavy downpours, gale force winds of 150 kph and storm surges up to five metres are predicted to batter the east coast

Evacuations of low-lying areas on the east coast of the North Island are under way, with power outages, fallen trees and roofs lifting off homes possible, according to the MetService, as well as widespread and “significant” flooding across the entire North Island.

A month’s worth of rain is expected to fall in the space of a day on the east coast, with the ground already sodden and covered in up to a metre of mud and debris.

Bay of Plenty looks like it will get absolutely hammered, as well as the Corromandel Peninsula.

Amazing nobody is here commenting, spoke to a mate in Wellington, the collective country must have kicked a black cat, dog or something. No real summer, rain, wind, cold, bloody big earthquakes, geez, no wonder ABS has kiwis moving in. Interesting next 24hrs.

I was wondering too. Maybe they're in a mad scramble to cope with it? while still recovering from ex-Debbie.

It intrigues me that more of the "avid" cyclone watchers for Au don't follow the ex-TC further than our own shores. I find them fascinating, especially when they arrive in NZ still capable of major damage.

For anyone interested in NZ and TC Cook, there's a thread here:

Still getting over ex-Debbie, now they've got this.

Coming in rather late on this - I'm currently travelling in the North Island of NZ, and arrived on the evening before TC Cook. It tracked on a path 50-100km further east than originally forecast, which turned out to be critical as it took Auckland (which ended up getting no significant winds at all) out of the firing line, with the main focus of severe winds being the eastern Bay of Plenty (209 km/h at White Island) through to Hawke's Bay. Rainfall totals with Cook were also generally not extreme as the system moved quickly - the remnants of Debbie were a far more productive rain producer.

The two systems came on top of a very wet March in places, and there is a lot of water around, and numerous small landslides ('slips' in local parlance). To give one example, Rotorua has had 445mm in the last 30 days.
