Great weather for ducks....?

I don't think so. We have had some seriously wet weather In my part of the world these last few days. the wet season seemed to have had a rather later start then usual. But early hours of this morning brought a large monsoonal low over us and with it a so called "mini tornado". Tornadoes are not something that we usually see in this part of the world, though we do have lots of pretty scary weather. Unfortunately along with this low it brought some seriously unexpected weather. Parts of my City have been devastated by this "Tornado" and it came without warning, in the very early hours of the morning when no-one expected it.

So many families live in this area. It is just 5 minutes drive form my own home.  Houses lost their roof, Families lives and belongings ripped out from under them.  Some while they lay sleeping in their beds. So tonight while your all cosy in your beds. Please spare a though and a little prayer for these families.

I drove through this area later in the day to go check on a good friend who wasn't answering her phone, And the disaster that I seen just rendered me speechless.

Someone's roof.

My girlfriend and her family live just near here.

A home destroyed.

Unexpected Chaos.
An evacuation centre has been set up near this area, And SO many people have just dug deep and got in to help clean up. The weather is still expected to be horrid, and we are still on a sever weather warning. Hopefully the worse is over though.

Looking at this map..there is still a lot of nasty weather to come.

Edited to add this link to another video.

Till next time.
