Tornado strikes West Coast town, New Zealand

A small tornado hit the northern West Coast town of Hector overnight, knocking over an old theatre, lifting roofs and cutting the electricity supply.

The old theatre and dancehall was demolished, roofing was lifted off several buildings, and at one place a back door imploded, Ngakawau Store owner Dennis Paxie said.
