Storms at Lake Macquarie, April 2015 — Photos.

Thought I’d post a few photos of the mess from the severe  storms that hit the Lake Macquarie area, Wangi Wangi. Just click on a pic for quick presentation of bigger and better pictures.

Other places copped more damage and lost power for longer periods, but in my immediate area these images are typical of the mess left in the wake of the storm.

Top job by emergency workers and power company. There were so many huge trees down over power lines, I thought it incredible we only lost power for 4 days.

It was also incredible the number of huge trees that missed hitting homes and cars. Toronto High School library still has a large tree lying on its roof (as at May 18th). Luckily it didn’t demolish the building or hurt anyone although the library remains closed. Thanks to Principal Mark McConville for permission to photograph the library and not putting me on detention.

The lake rose about a metre and started going where it shouldn’t.

If you would like to check out some photos of Wangi and its surrounds when the sun was shining, you can click this link to my previous photo posting…..

Words for today;    Power lines – why aren’t they underground?

More to come;    same blog time, same blog channel.


  1. I’m not sure if it’s appropriate in this instance to say that you take the best pictures, but you do.

    • How excellent of you to say that Mary, thank you. Some were through the windscreen, some in the wind and rain; but I think they are good enough to give a reader some idea of the mess.
