Mini tornado

Man stuffed up heaps around rocko. And yet flat as a tack at work. Floods. Trees. Roofs . Cars , windows, and fencing heaps of damage

 Yeah, it came through pretty hard here in Wellard too. Downpour and strong winds, got about 10mm in 5 minutes.

 Folks were in Shoalwater Bay and called me to give my opinion on the radar. At 10:128 suggested they tuck into the small bay in bird island. They copped 60's and had to turn on the bulge pump due to the rain. Visibility down to 50m

I was watching it from Fremantle Sailing club. Was a very angry cloud.

 Also watched it coming across the sound from work.... glad I was out of the EWP when it hit . Hopefully the guy who was hit on Kent street with the tin is ok, came through pretty quick.

 Rockingham has the nickname of "Tornado Alley". We know first hand what it's like. The last "mini tornado" that came thru a few years ago, tore our roof off. Even lifted the rsj beam.

Huge bill,thank god we had insurance!
