Donations for the family of a man killed in a freak tornado in south Auckland have reached more than $50,000, as the clean-up operation continues, Stuff reports. The tornado ravaged Papatoetoe on Saturday morning, tearing apart houses, injuring at least two people and killing contractor Janesh Prasad, a diesel mechanic who was working at the South Auckland Freight Hub, in Wiri. A Givealittle fundraising page was set up in memory of Prasad, to offer support to his wife and two young children.
