tornado in auckland!

Wow, its been a while since Auckland got hit with anything close to a natural disaster. So of course facebook is going crazy with idiots saying "its 2012", its actually still 2011, and this has happened before. The suburb it hit is just a lot more built up now. apparently two people died, not too sure how. The news had an interview with a couple of clowns who were working in the mall it hit, and they really make a big deal of themselves giving some kids some balloons. nice work cornflake the clown. There was a quick shot of the kids getting a balloon and one was crying. Imagine if you already were scared of clowns, just got hit by a tornado and then some clown comes up and gives you a balloon.

Heres a couple of home taken videos :








pretty exciting stuff. Once again twitter was the best source for immediate news.

  12. We don't get tornadoes where I am, so I always thought they were scary. But judging from the first video, tornadoes seem like a lot of fun!

  14. I don't put any stock into the 2012 theory, but I must admit the weather patterns have been rather strange. I think we're in for a bumpy ride.

  17. Two people died because they were just standing by the windows watching it lol. In the video above the chick was like "shouldn't we be in the basement?" which is golden advice. Oh well, you live you learn. =D
