    For those who haven't heard, on Tuesday a tornado hit Albany in Auckland's north shore. Given the climate and geography, this is a pretty rare occurrence. There were several injuries and at least one death reported so far. Strange and scary.

    I really feel for NZ. Are the gods striking them down? I hope this is the last of such natural disasters that effect them.
