A freak mini Tornado ripped through Auckland New Zealand killing three people leaving several more injured. This footage from a helicopter shows a collapsed house with its roof ripped off and all around trees have been smashed by the force of the wind.

This woman who was travelling along a major road had an incredibly lucky escape.

She described the moment she had her own Wizard of Oz tornado experience, as a boat flew through the air right in front of her car.

Military personnel are currently going from door to door in the area to check if any residents are trapped or injured but authorities have warned of more severe weather to come later on today.
