Tornado misses Greymouth

26 December 2005

Greymouth residents have had a lucky escape from a tornado this morning. A twister was spotted out at sea, but it died down before reaching land. One resident says he feared it would be a repeat of the tornado in March this year, which caused widespread damage and cost the town thousands.

Russ Down, from The Jade radio station, says he could see the twister become quite big from the station's studios. He says it then just vanished. He admits his fingers were crossed as this was similar to the way the big tornado had appeared.
