Well, I hope this is the last thing I will have to write about the “super cell” storm which struck Canberra on Tuesday night (27 February 2007). This article serves as my summary to not only my information on the storm, but my pick of the photos floating about on other websites about the storm.
But first, the local television news coverage was quite excellent last night, firstly at 6pm it was Win News with Jessica Good once again filling in for Peter Leonard. Features pictures of the storm, the cleanup, and the toll to many businesses.
Then at 7pm, ABC News with Virginia Haussegger, features more pictures of the storm and the cleanup, a bit more info than Win on the ESA’s excuse for not warning anyone, and also pictures (sourced from Seven News) of a similar storm which hit Sydney yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon.
My description of the events of the storm, as well as photos of the aftermath can be found here.
There are some very good photos on other websites as well, click the links to go to their photos.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed me to thank me for my photos, and a really big thank you to everyone for not sending me the set of photos that were emailed to just about every other website in Canberra.
