    Or not! See how localised the damage was – nearly all of the 150 properties damaged were old airforce houses in the old staff housing area. The tornado missed the adjacent brand new exclusive subdivision AND the airforce base at Whenuapai just across the road. In other words it was very localised and probably now means the problematic old houses can be demolished quickly without as much resource consent hassle & cost to make way for further multi-million dollar redevelopment in the area. Same thing happened in Christchurch pretty much. It’s all about “rebuilding” to these a-holes and most definitely profit over people.

    • Air force personnel and weather modification technology have been hand-in-hand for decades.

      Also note that the US Air Force produced the ‘Owning the Weather in 2025’ document.
