Hi Mike/Jimmy, yeah thanks.  They look great on the 50 inch plasma  ;)  Looking forward to being able to apply the panoramic style to some US beasts!

Hi there, This is my first mini-documentary of a storm event.

Shepparton experienced the biggest storm in living memory on the 7th of March, 2010. Windgusts of around 156km/h and over 10mm of rain were experienced in 3 minutes.
This 10 minute youtube clip brings together all media possible of the event and includes interviews a week after the storm hit of several townsfolk and how they dealt with it.

oh nope, i didnt actually, i'll get in touch and ask him, and remove it if need be. That was a rushed last minute add, at 3am. There's a lot i don't know about weather as it is a new interest of mine, so i'd be prepared to modify if need be. cheers for the feedback.

I don't mind the voice-over.    Nicely put together video.   Funny how we all say "best storm ever" when the rest of the community would be thinking worst   :)

Here is a link to the picks taken in Shepparton on the 7th. Also included are some images from Lake Boga taken on my way back home to Adelaide. The system that looks like a tunnel was west of Echuca these are from the 8th.

Tornadoes did occur prior to this system reaching Shepparton

Any further information as to these tornado reports? I would love to hear about them.

Hey all,
I'm new to the forum and wanted to post some pictures I took of this weather event. I was located in West Melton, 35 kms west of Melbourne and filmed the storm on approach. After repositioning myself, the storm passed by 2 kms to my north. Just managed to stay away from the large hail in the out flow. Couldn't believe how green the clouds were, lots of CG's and wind gusts around the 90 kms/hr mark.
All the Best,
Chris.
