A little of this and that, not too much of some things and way too much of other things...
Hi Tempo,The storm certainly made a mess, it looked like your area has lovely red soil, it was terrible to see a lot of soil going down the drain.A lot of people have a bit of damage to repair, it is heart breaking to see.
It's not much of a storm compared to some across the world but for the middle of the desert in Southern central Australia it's a big one...LOL The city is built on many metres of red desert silts and sands many millions of years old. One friend picked up his new Mitsubishi 4WD three days before the storm.. it was a write off.
We had the tail end of that storm down here, a lot of wind and rain in my area, some suburbs got hailstones, some had power loss, but nothing too bad. I love storms.
If that had happened in England the whole country would've stopped.
I went on youtube and looked at more videos of the storm. That was a bad one. Your back alley looks like a river. We rarely get hail here, maybe once a year and it is small.
That was a beauty indeed :-).
How long does it take for the water to be absorbed into the soil after a storm that bad? Did the hail last awhile on the ground?Also, I want that cedar-esque tree you have in your front yard! It looks like the cedar tree next to my porch only with sideways needles.
Hi River, It went above Adelaide, Pirie got it and Jamestown and that area. Its a good thing Adelaide missed it or it would have done millions of dollars damage.Hey Jules, Again if it hit such a crowded area the damage would have gone well into the millions, as it is there aren't many towns here abouts so the damage was sparse.Hi Belle, Hail is usually pea sized here when it does come but this was exceptional.Hi Windsmoke, a beauty indeed...pity about all the wrecked cars, windows and roofs. Hi Sarah, In the middle of the storm the ground was completely covered with hail but as soon as the hail stopped and the rain continued the hail melted fast. Thats why my video shows piles of hail under the trees where it wasn't melted by the rain, everything was overed like that originally. The common name of that tree is a Bookleaf Pine..Or Thuja Orientalis Aurea Nana, the Golden Biota. (I dont have a good memory, I have the tag still..)
Good grief, and its summer over there!
Hi Joe, Absolutely right mate, and it should not be raining let alone storming. Right now it should be unbearably hot with no winds, instead of very humid with possibilities of rain over the next few days.
I live in a shoe...I had no idea of this storm! Holy crap is what I got to say! I also read your post before this one! Holy crap!...k, I already said that...but holy crap!
Hi Sandra, thats what a lot of people were saying as the storm hit.. I only today got up on my brand new shed to see what damage had been done..Holy Crap!
Yikes! I'm glad you and your family are ok. Hail that size can do more than damage cars and buildings.
Hi Jen, great to hear from you again, I've been wondering how you are. I think this is the first time ever that we've had hail like this here
Even that thunder scared the crap out of me. Insane footage. Thanks for showing it.
Hi Cal, it was such an oddity here that half the city was out taping it, I missed the worst of it as I searched for the battery for the camera...
