3 people are killed and 3 others are missing after a South Korean fishing boat sinks 400 miles from Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand.
The fire onboard South Korean ship FV "Don Wong 701" in the Port of Timaru, New Zealand, enters its third day. At least four vessels – MV "Searuby", MV "San Granit", MV "Longview Logger" and MV "Jeppesen Maersk" – are delayed from arriving.
New Zealand's South Island is lashed by wild weather. Dunedin and Christchurch have roads cut off and flights cancelled as conditions worsen. Heavy snow and flooding is reported in parts of Canterbury, Otago and Southland.
