STORM ON OAKS DAY

The worst of the storm hit about 2 pm, and emergency services received about 200 calls in two hours. Flash floodwaters breached kerbs across the CBD, including in Swanston Street and Chapel Street, Prahran.

We were fortunate in Fairfield, for although we had the storm pass through with lots of spectacular clouds and rain, we did not suffer from any flash flooding or damage to infrastructure and property...

  4. Storm can be very beautiful too, just like your photos. That first one is so awesome, the white building got a background to be more alive, resulting not in a surreal but awesome landscape. Your list choices here are all beautiful
