Tornado hits Rotorua - reports

Thursday 6 Dec 2012 4:51 p.m.

By 3 News online staff

A large tornado is understood to have passed through Rotorua this afternoon.

A 3 News cameraman said the tornado had lifted the roof off his garage at his Sunnex Rd address in the Hamurana suburb.

A school is also believed to have been evacuated in Rotorua.

It comes just hours after what is believed to have been a series of tornadoes tore through West Auckland, killed three people and leaving several injured.

Between 100 and 150 west Auckland homes have been damaged, with many deemed uninhabitable.
