That's the thunderstorm warning (not connected to Bianca) that was cancelled, but not before hammering Northam.
TC Bianca is still on track to impact on the South West tomorrow

Glad it fizzled before it got to you.

Not 10 k's east of me people don't think it fizzled.
homes without roofs, shearing sheds blown away.
Vollies still hard at it even now.

I was lucky - we only lost power for about 5 hours. And got some rain with mild wind. I left a job to come home only to find that I had driven from the worst of it to relative safety at home.

Telstra's mobile tower must have lost power as we had no mobile signal out here for several hours also.

Glad I don't live any further east.

Wanneroo must be in its own unique completely different weather / climate system/conditions to the rest of the metro area. If still in catastrophic fire conditions (drove past your warning signs several times yesterday) how can you task resources to York yesterday? Isn't this putting pressure on other surrounding brigades? Rhetorical questions, no need for answers.

Wanneroo has had extra appliances given to them by FESA and are the strike team for the metro and outer area of Perth. Considering you are not aware of that i doubt you are aware of the weather conditions outside your window..... it may not even rain today.

Even DEC North Coastal are mobilising fixed wing bombers to ALL there fires no matter how small.

St Seedy, no need to be nasty. It was a feasible question by Gohie and no, we are not aware of Wannaroo having any special strike force requirement by FESA. If so, that is news to us.

Please treat all questions politly and treat other forum members as you would like to be treated.

Cheers.
