  • Western Australia battered by worst storms in a decade
    Homes were destroyed and tens of thousands of people left without power as a "once in a decade" storm pummelled the western half of Western Australia on Sunday night, with worse expected overnight and on Monday morning. The storm, which is expected to continue well into Monday, was described by Bureau of Meteorology state manager James Ashley as a "dynamic and complex" weather formation caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Mangga interacting with a cold front. Winds of more than 100kmh destroyed power lines and tore roofs from homes and businesses late on Sunday and the storm was expected to worsen overnight as it moved south along the coast, with winds up 130kmh predicted. Western Power spokesperson Paul Entwistle told WA Today that about 37,000 homes and businesses in Perth, the state capital, had lost power by Sunday evening, along with 13,000 properties are in Western Australia's Mid West region, including the port city of Geraldton, where it was reported that rooftops torn from homes collided with power lines. In Perth, a radio tower was believed to have fallen onto power lines in the city's eastern suburbs, contributing to the disruption of supply. Dozens of traffic lights across the city were knocked out. The entire town of Margaret River, a popular tourist destination about 240km south of Perth and home to 8,000 people, lost power. By late Sunday afternoon, the state's emergency services had received more than 200 calls for help. A deep low-pressure system was forecast to form off the south-west corner of the state. Mr Ashley told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Sunday that "in a broad area, the south-west of the state will be hit really severely overnight, tonight and into tomorrow". "Really quite severe conditions will still be experienced in Perth tomorrow morning... (And) in small pockets up in the north of the state they are still likely to experience those 130 kilometre per hour [winds], those really severe conditions. "I should emphasise it's pretty much the whole western half of the state that's getting strong northerly winds at the moment," he said. The Bureau of Meteorology also predicted ten-metre high waves would hit the south west coast of the state on Monday morning, following seven-metre waves along the Gascoyne to Geraldton coast further north. In Geraldton, more than 400km north of Perth, winds of 113kmh were recorded as the city, along with surrounding areas, were shrouded with dust. Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Jessica Lingard told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that the "wind is picking up the dust through parts of the Gascoyne and the Central West, but the rain should increase in the coming hours so hopefully that will dampen that down... We are expecting conditions to worsen down the west coast as we move into this afternoon". The dust storm caused low visibility which complicated efforts to tackle an out-of-control bushfire in the southern part of Waggrakine, in the City of Greater Geraldton. "There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing," the Department of Fire and Emergency Services warned on Sunday afternoon.
