More wild weather, storms, heavy rain and flash floods wreak havoc across Victoria

Victoria was buffeted by the tail of cyclone YASI, as it moved south, having first devastated the Queensland coast.

“Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs were among the worst-affected, with Lyndhurst recording 181 millimetres of rain in the 30 hours to 3pm yesterday. Melbourne’s CBD copped 83 millimetres. A record rainfall of 174 millimetres in Mildura, in the state’s north-west, reportedly left vineyards waist-deep in water. There were ”hailstones as big as golf balls.”’ Source

The ‘Devil’ and its Tail


“Driving rain and winds of more than 130km/h battered much of the state on Friday night and Saturday morning, cutting power to more than 32,000 homes, crippling public transport and forcing the rescue of 90 people from flooded cars and homes.” Said a report.

At least 6,000 residents in towns Iona, Coralynn and Bayles and Koo Wee Rup have been ordered to evacuate their homes by 21:30 local time, the report added.

Cold weather shuts down 17 power plants across northern Mexico

Mexico withdraws offer to supply electricity to Texas, where power plants are also shut down by freezing weather.

“The CFE said units at 17 power stations with 6,792 megawatts of generating capacity were offline in the north due to the cold, up from 3,800 megawatts on Thursday.” Said a report.

More than 300,000 Texas homes and business have been experiencing rolling power blackouts since Wednesday.

“Rolling blackouts in Texas and cold weather in the Rocky Mountains have caused natural gas shortages across the Southwest,” a report said.

“Cold weather and natural gas outages across New Mexico prompted Gov. Susana Martinez to call a state of emergency Thursday and order all schools and non-essential state government offices to shut on Friday to conserve fuel.”

“While we are still dealing with natural gas shortages across the state, the process is underway for restoring supplies and service to affected communities,” Martinez told reporters, noting that 32,000 New Mexican homes and businesses had lost natural gas services.

In Arizona, thousands of homes and businesses in Tuscon and Sierra Vista lost gas service Thursday and most were still without service Friday, the report said.
