Ngā hau kaha ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara

Ngā hau kaha ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara

Ko te hau-ā-uru te hau nui ki Aotearoa. Ka hau te rongo mō Te Whanganui-a-Tara, he tāone ka pūhia nuitia e te hau. Ahakoa tērā whakapae, kāore e tino kaha atu te toharite pupuhi o te hau ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara, tērā ki Waihopai (Invercargill), ki Tāmaki-makau-rau. Ko te tino take kōrerohia ai a Te Whanganui-a-Tara, ko te kaha o ngā popohau – neke atu i te e 60 kiromita ia haora – ka wepu i te tāone mō ngā rā e 173 ia tau; e 30 anake ngā rā i te tau ka pupuhi ngā popohau ki Rotorua, e 35 rā ki Whakatū. Ko te kōanga te wā kitea ai ngā amarara kua pūhia whakawaho e te hau.
