At this stage of the season, we're sitting here in Melbourne watching what everyone else is copping. For example, the damage done in Kurri Kurri was unbelievable. It's cold down here for November, but otherwise pretty peaceful; we haven't had a decent electrical storm for many, many months.All very quite so far up here in the Northern Riverina too thankfully,Hopefully we have a very low storm season.
As a rule, we don't seem to get too many bad storms; strong winds crop up occasionally and a few trees come down which the SES get cleared up pretty fast, but that's about the extent of our dramas.
In Melbourne we've just had a short burst of thunder and lightning, with hail and rain. One quick look at the radar says there's more on the way, coming down from the north east, and there are patches of moderate/heavy colour in there.Valvegear stay safe those sky rocks tend to hurt and Thanks.
A couple in their 20's got out of their car here in Melbourne's storm yesterday, and headed towards a tree, for some unknown reason. They were hit by lightning; the man suffered a cardiac arrest but apparently survived, and the woman was severely burned and died in hospital.Yeah i just saw that on my Weatherzone feed ,poor buggers,trees must be avoided at all times when storms are around.
If only they'd stayed in the car they would have been safe.
