    Exclamation Cyclone cat 3 headed for New Zealand

    Tropical Cyclone Zelia has been upgraded further overnight to a category 3 storm, making her now a "severe" tropical storm reports WeatherWatch.co.nz. The storm is expected to maintain category 3 status for another 24 hours before dropping to category 1 again once she leaves the tropics and passes over cooler waters in the Tasman Sea according to Australia's Bureau of Meteorology. Zelia is still on track to reach New Zealand from Tuesday onwards. Zelia now has sustained hurricane force winds (120km/h) with gusts to 165km/h. Zelia is comparable to a category 1 hurricane using the better known Saffir-Simpson scale, used to measure hurricanes in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific.- WeatherWatch.co.nz

    Hoping it just goes away, far far away.

    Apparently it has been downgraded, so we're expecting some windy weather and heavy rain but nothing too damaging.

    Thumbs up

    Matt,
    That is great news... I hate those things. They can be so very deadly and destructive. I went through 3 in 2 months the latter part of last year... so be safe and sound and we will see ya soon.

    PS> HANG ON to something anyway.... lol
