    After the storm

    Power was restored early this afternoon so I had a chance to download the shots. Some are from late yesterday directly after the storm and others from this morning.

    1 Public primary School had a deal of damage




    2 Main street




    3




    4 Next door




    5 Fire and Emergency haven't stopped all night and are still going



    6



    7 The next lot are shots of a commercial shed roof that blew about 60 mtrs over the top of the workshop on to the western highway exit in town, took a power pole down with it and leaving power lines scattered and a work ute crushed by a tree.

    13 When I walk past a chuch, this happens. Imagine what happens when I walk into a church.

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    #5 is great with the chips flying.
    I think Eric needs some mechanical work himself.
    I don't mean to sound blasé but having been in the SES for 15 years I have seen this and more.
    It is great you survived but greater that you had the presence of mind to get out there and record it.
    Congratulations.
    Peter.

    Thanks for sharing, Mother nature can really put it on at times.
    Trees can be trimmed and grow back.
    Sheds and houses can be rebuilt.
    But peoples lives can't be bought back.
    As heartbreaking as it is to see such damage hopefully everyone is safe and being a country town everyone will pull together and help out.
    Regards
    Wayne
