Cyclone Gabrielle has cut a path of destruction across many parts of New Zealand. A National Emergency has been declared, the third time in New Zealand’s history. Communities remain isolated, people have been evacuated from their homes and power remains out to thousands as high winds bring down lines. Emergency services say parts of Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne could be without electricity for days, if not weeks. There are major road closures with big slips reported from northland to the East Cape. The Thames Coromandel region was hit hard overnight, and Mayor Len Salt says they’re not out of the woods yet.
