rather nasty storm hits canberra

By Thumper 5 December 2005 22

As many of you would know, JB excepted, canberra was hit with a rather large storm on friday [As reported in the Canberra Times]. Damage estimates are in the tens of millions of dollars and a man sadly lost his life when a tree fell on him at the height of the storm.

Anyone driving around would have noticed the masses of snapped or fallen trees and the fact that Fyshwick got nailed.

Emergency crews have been working non stop since Friday afternoon to clean up the damage and as such one must give huge credit to the SES and RFS volunteers as well as ESA and everyone else involved.

Top effort guys.

The clean up is still continuing today and will possibly go on well into the week. For those who still may need SES assistance, the number is available on the Canberraconnect website.
