Cyclone Cook is being compared to Cyclone Giselle.  The similarities are that Giselle struck NZ on the 10th of April 1968, at Easter, and caused havoc across the country.  It is best remembered as the storm in which the Wahine sunk at the entrance to Wellington Harbour.  In 1968 Southland was not spared. Farmland was inundated and there were many stock losses. Both Mataura and Wyndham were flooded with many having to evacuate their homes.  The good news is presently the Metservice has removed the weather watch for Southland.  So far so good.  Hopefully the storm will move out to sea quickly in the North and flooding is prevented up there.
