    If you're after a thunderstorm, then Thursday might be your lucky day for some. Any alerts will be sent from our alert service at www.lert.info . These can be vital when a Severe Thunderstorm warning is issued because these are very fast developing and their line of travel is fairly easy to calculate. The lead-in time for these can bevery short at about 15 minutes.

     Heavy rain causes slips and more to come                            NZTA Heavy Rain in the Tasman district caused slips and flooding north of Murchison.           Apparently the slip originated from "quite high" in the bushline.                                             NZTA                                     The stretch of closed road is just north of Murchison, with a detour in place using SH63 and Korere-Tophouse Rd. It's unclear how long it will take to clear. The detour is about 65km.   Very heavy rain is forecast from Greymouth to Milford from Wednesday and will most likely see the Haast Highway closed for flooding or slips.           If you're a regular road user why not check out NZ's only National Txt road alert service              We often get exclusive reports much sooner that others.

      Friday, 1 November 2019 (ODT)   One death from meningitis  One person in the South has died from meningitis. Southern District Health Board medical officer of health Dr Anura Jayasinghe said there were three confirmed cases of the disease, including one death, due to meningitis this month. There was not considered to be any link between the cases. Dr Jayasinghe said once Public Health South was notified of any meningitis case it worked promptly to identify anyone who had been in close contact with the infected patient within the past seven days. The contacts were prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection. Symptoms included a high fever, headaches, sleepiness and joint and muscle pains. There could also be more specific symptoms such as a stiff neck, dislike of bright lights, vomiting, crying, refusal to feed in infants or a rash consisting of reddish-purple pinprick spots or bruises, he said. "Even if you have had a meningococcal vaccine, you still need to look out for symptoms, because the vaccines do not protect against all meningococcal strains. "If you develop any of the symptoms of meningococcal disease it is important to see a doctor immediately."  Free emergency alerts - www.lert.info

      Police urge people to watch out for suspicious activity when out and about   Wednesday, 30 October 2019 - 8:29am   Central   Please attribute to Detective Mark Currin, Manawatu CIB: Manawatu Police are reminding people to be aware of the risk of drink spiking, following recent reports of suspicious activity at bars in Palmerston North.   Police are currently investigating a small number of sexual assault allegations involving possible drink spiking at bars in the inner city. While Police is unable to provide specific details of these allegations due to active investigations, we are urging people to stay vigilant when they are out and about, to report any suspicious behaviour and to keep an eye on their mates. Remember: • Never accept drinks from a stranger. • Don’t leave your drink unattended or accept any drinks you haven’t seen poured, especially from people you don’t know. • If your drink tastes strange, throw it away. • If you start to feel dizzy or unwell while drinking tell bar staff, security or someone you trust straight away. • Always let someone know where you are going, and if you need help urgently call 111. Police want people to stay safe while enjoying themselves in town and ask that they watch out for themselves and one another. If anyone has any information to report about concerning or suspicious behaviour they can call Police on 105 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    In the interests of public safety, you'd expect Metservice and NIWA to have the same forecasts. Difference in forecast could have put people at risk.  NIWA's winds were in a "safe" level of about 70kph gusts, Metservice and Weatherwatch were going for gusts to 120kph. NIWA was wrong . We use Weatherwatch and Metservice.
