    Damaging winds and huge wave warning to those camping, tramping or on the water on the West Coast

    A storm likely to bring damaging winds and huge waves is centring on New Zealand's West Coast, sparking warnings to those camping, tramping or on the water


    Weatherwatch.co.nz is forecasting "damaging" gales over 150km/h, waves up to 13 metres, and a metre of snow on the Southern Alps.

    There could also be more than 200mm of rain for parts of the West Coast.

    Philip Duncan of weatherwatch says the storm will be significant.
