The wind speed at Kurnell this morning, about 2 1/2 hours ago was 213 kph - that's over 130 mph

So I noticed on the tele. Ian. Gale force here too from the SE but nothing like Sydney. Lots of scrap ex roofing about.

Is that a storm Ian? Frontal? What's the cause?

It's been called a tornado. It was a storm cell that passed through... one of many today. I suspect that it was more microbursts than tornado... but we'll get the full story from the weather bureau

Some photos...

That's further north than where the damage was done, but same storm cell. About 10 - 15 km from where the damage was. I know a few people who live where the main damage was
