What's the story with this tornado guy's? Was this spawned by a low topped supercell or as a gustnado along a frontal boundary? It seemed to be pretty strong and more than likely caused by a low topped supercell imho. Any thought from the mjore experienced considering this looks to have been more significant than the Sydney event?

Came across some more photos of this event:

No sounding is available for Perth, but I guess it would have been similar to Albany 00z
