Melbourne blows! by Ellerd on 2 April 2008 1:01pm
 
I know there are at least two Melbourne-based Palinites here. I hope the hurricane-force winds didn't create too much havoc for you guys today...

2.57pm, the automatic weather station at Rhyll (Phillip Island) recorded a maximum wind gust of 124kph (77mph). That's gotta hurt! :-(

It's a mess! There are trees down everywhere, we have had no power all day in my town (it came back on a couple of hours ago),the windows next to the building where my daughter works blew out today and shattered all over the people in the offices (Jess heard them go she thought a bomb had gone off) and the trains aren't running. Two people have been killed with the wind blowing structures onto them, it's scary.

We were warned that there would be gale force winds yes, but didn't expect it to be as bad as it was!

Oh dear, sounds very scary. Glad to know you are okay!

Thanx! Oh we also had a big dust storm blow in from the north, the sky was an eerie orange.

So glad you and Missy and loved ones are alright. Thank goodness this didn't happen while you were out for your lunch rendezvous.

Glad you guys are OK, but Karen stop sucking air in and blowing it out. Someone is gonna get hurt.
