Captain Oblivious reporting to you live from Perth. Apparently at 8:30a.m. this morning, "at least one tornado smashed its way through southern Perth today, ripping roofs off houses and causing mass blackouts", the Bureau of Meteorology said.
"Winds reached 104kmh at Ocean Reef in Perth's north, with a bureau spokesman saying they would have been much stronger in Rockingham." That's roughly 40km north and west of where I'm staying!
Where the hell was I? Apparently nowhere near anything other than squally rain. WHEW!!!!!
This is Captain Oblivious signing off.
