this particular storm must have had some 100+ knot
winds,and was like a mini cyclone caused by a very small intense low it also dumped over 10cm of rain in a few hours that caused widespread flooding locally.
thing was that in brisbane
,and hervey bay area australia
,that is about the same lattitude,but 8000miles away, they were at almost the same time having very similar weather
with 140mm of rain in a few hours from an intense low.
so definitly a global trend,these freak 100 year storms
