Hi Paul,

I totally missed that area of damage before. Just above "approx" in the image you posted there is another tree which appears to have fallen to the NW. Certainly very interesting but I suppose it is possible that someone could have come along with a chainsaw and chopped down badly damaged trees. Also, as you say, looking closely there does appear to be further damage east into the heavily forested area. I can remember seeing damage further east of where the photos were taken on Kangaroo road but I cannot recall exactly where this was. In any case, this damage was not as extensive.

Jimmy,

I would like to head down there but unfortunately I do not have access to a car at the moment. I might see if I can work something out. Also, good points about how to ask questions. I imagine it is quite possible to inadvertently feed someone the information you want to hear.

A friend will also send me photos of the Kiama supercell and hail soon (I hope, he should have them saved somewhere). If I remember correctly, he did actually have some photos of the storm before it hit. Not sure if it will reveal anything in regards to structure. I might post them here if he gives me the okay.

Regards,
Michael

Picture of the structore of a storm in the area will greatly assist in piecing together what occurred on the day. Looking forward to any evidence brought forward.

Jeff, I knew you had mentioned something about an event - so it was this storm. I am glad we revisited it for analysis.

Hi Jimmy,

In this video there is a small segment of the storm (near Gerringong?) This would have been taken shortly after the possible tornado I believe. Looks to me to have HP structure at that stage (both visually and on radar).

Also, I found this when digging through the old weatherzone thread -

Excellent sequence of photos there from Canberra.

HI Michael,

Thanks for the reminder of the videos. Why not get Pintang to offer his feelings of the storm. Patrack Tobin's cell was interesting but was it a different storm?

Hi Jimmy,

The Canberra storm was a seperate storm, just thought I would post the link since I thought the structure was quite nice and it also occurred on the 20th of Jan.
