Some of you may have heard on the wire about the major wind, rain and hailstorm that lashed the city of Perth on Monday 22 March in the afternoon. We’re all still reeling from the effects. Here are a few images to give you an idea of the damage…
”]Many households have been affected, but the major damage was to cars from the hefty sizes of the hailstones that fell. At my work, there wasn’t a single car in the open air carpark that wasn’t damaged. My beloved car, like my workmates’ cars, has a zillion dents on the roof, side panels and bonnet. The windscreen has two large cracks in them and I’m slowly working my way through insurance processes.
No use fixing the windscreen until an assessment and until I’m sure the car’s not going to be a write-off. Word is that the storm has caused more than $100 million in damages. You should have seen the car dealers at the Audi Dealership down the road where I work! Thank God, we are all safe. Our neighbourhood escaped damage and we didn’t even have a power outage. That means I’m still stitching 😉
