In Newcastle there has been a lot on Local media calling this storm up to the level of the pasha floods 5 years ago
And they seem to beat it up and get locals panicked
I was watching the radars and they didn't get anywhere up to that in rain at least
Got up to 95 km overnight I heard ( anyone verify that)

And so because I give a reason as to why some may have stated something I'm his buddy
No I read our local rags and listen to local radio and it was hyped as a big rain and wind event. Every bloody year they put it on up here. Sells em advertising
I knew when he posted last night we were no where near finished with the event.

I was looking at the same waves but from many kilometres away over on top of north head, and they even looked big from there. Enjoy.

It's just this particular event and bludymick has hit the nail on the head,
every time rain is forecast here people ditch cars in the middle of the road and run for their lives, only this year I saw a lady slam on the brakes, get out and run after a lightning strike,
Storm or not i wouldn't be heading out in the yak with a "weather event" forecast, but 9 times out of 10 a "pasha storm" results in 1mm of rain and a clear sunny day, theres a big difference between these storms now and the weather bomb that flooded newcastle
