The above amateur video shows the aftermath of mini-tornado damage on Tuesday, uploaded yesterday, and this stuff article has a picture of it in action.

It isn’t the first time such has happened: a more substantial tornado went through the northern outskirts of Waikanae in July 2011 which uprooted some large trees on both sides of SH1 and damaged some farm structures.

The earthquake and severe weather happening at the same time as the “supermoon” has led some to speculate that there is a connection between the events.
