‘Storm on steroids,’ massive tornadoes wreak havoc in Australia: 20 injured

March 22, 2013 AUSTRALIA Two Australian men made a dramatic escape from a tornado in New South Wales after the twister touched down only meters from their car. Daniel Clarke, 24, told Australia’s 7 News channel how he was driving from the town of Mulwala to nearby Barooga when the tornado, which was around 50 meters wide at its base, appeared in a field next to them. Nearby power lines exploded with a blue flash as they were hit by the whirling column of air. With rain and debris hammering the windscreen as the tornado advances towards them, Mr. Clarke reverses at speed before performing a hand-brake turn in the road. But the twister continues to barrel through the adjoining field, travelling almost parallel to their car at a speed of approximately 50 mph. –Telegraph

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong but haven’t tornadoes been exclusive to the USA prior to the past few years?

      Tornadoes occur on all continents except Antarctica. They are most numerous in the United States along the area known colloquially as Tornado Alley… There is a region in India that gets the second most tornadoes. They are rare other places, but not impossible. Instant communications and better forecasting technology only make it seem as if it is worse than ever.

    I saw video of this tornado on The Weather Channel. Frightening. Weather gone wild. And I believe that the U.S. will be next. Fasten your seatbelts.

    Reporting from South GA again. Super intense storm just ripped through. Left incredible amounts of hail, looks like small snowdrifts in spots. Trees down and power out. My grandma said “in 82 years I have never experienced anything like this”.

      This year’s weather will be one to remember – the expression “cataclysmic” may not be fully descriptive…Pray, Pray, Pray, for it will be terrible…

    My partner & I drove from Melbourne VIC to Wagga Wagga NSW from 4pm to 9.30pm 21/3/13 AEST, about 440kms in all, & I all I can say is wow, how we made it without accident I don’t know!!! That should have been just a 4 hour trip & if I wasn’t as daring as I am it would’ve been much longer. There was what was called big storm hitting Melbourne as we were getting out of town, & it was a bad one, but it was nothing compared to what we saw a few hours into the trip, that was unbelieveable! We could already see lightning & flashes in every single direction in the distance, & all of a sudden from light drizzle the whole time to that point, we got hit by a downpour of biblical proportions! No visibility, there was debris & trees knocked over all over the road & it was like driving via a river way…… Cars & trucks on the other side were banked up for many many kilometers in the middle of nowhere heading back towards Melbourne on the other side, & at the head of this jam a number of truckies were trying to chainsaw the large trees blocking all three lanes. We then made it to the eye of the storm & had a much easier time for many kilometers & then of course we came out the other end…. just! I was literally crawling along & still only managed to miss trees that had fallen across the freeway from both directions. Closer to our destination it was calmer again, but the clouds were scary black & low with just misty rain & still there was thunder & lighting still in every single direction. As soon as we arrived another vicious storm struck Wagga & many in town were out with lights all on, looking at it saying they’d never seen anything like it….. We hadn’t either, I swear we saw hundreds of flashes and many lighting bolts that went across massive distances. It was so loud & bright at times. That amount of electricity over such a large distance, I still can’t believe it.
    The next day was beautiful by the way, drove rest of the way to Sydney to pick up our new puppy, & then all the way back home to Melbourne again. I love driving!! Lol…. Over 1600 kms in 2 days, but our new baby was worth it & we just thank God we are were safe & sound…. I think my mrs was praying virtually the whole way to Wagga & from some of the reports of accidents etc we’ve seen from that storm, I really think it helped, we were so lucky & we’ll probably never attempt that kind of craziness again!!
    Cheers
