Looks like we might cop some of that east coast weather over here in the west on the weekend. Be good to see some (hopefully) decent rain  for a change.
Dry as an arab sandle over here.

Definitely was, most of the damage was only about 2 kms from me and about 150 m from my partners house. We are both senior members of our SES unit... so needless to say we didn’t get much rest. We both did Rapid Impact Assesments for the first 5 hours.. I’ve never seen anything like it. I ended up taking over as Incident Controller at 10 am, as part of my role I worked with an investigation team from the BOM. This was quite interesting and was able to provide them with details of timings and initial reports from the community. They have since confirmed that it was a Tornado that hit Waurn Ponds.
