Quick question, does the last picture work as I can’t see it? If it does then my iPad and or browser is playing up and the @moderators and @ondrej2021 can delete this.

Hate it when I press the delete button accidentally.

We don’t get many storms here in DC, but when we do, they’re bad. The sky is really dark and the winds are so strong, they knock over small trees and send trash cans flying across the street. I’ll be sure to take a picture of the next one that hits us.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH CENTRAL AND WESTERN VICTORIA.

Weather Situation:
Severe thunderstorms are expected in a moist airmass on and ahead of a surface trough in the west of the State. Damaging winds and heavy rain are a risk with thunderstorms.

  • Keep clear of fallen power lines.
  • Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
  • Don’t drive, ride or walk through flood water.
  • Be aware that in fire affected areas, rainfall run-off into waterways may contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks.
  • Be alert that in areas recently affected by fires, heavy rainfall increases the potential for landslides and debris across roads.
  • Stay indoors if possible.
  • Avoid using the phone during the storm.
  • If you are outside, avoid sheltering under trees
  • Listen to the radio for storm updates
  • Switch off your computer and electrical appliances
