Happy to say our roof is still attached, unfortunately many were not so lucky. The storm through Sunday into Monday, the remnants of ex-Tropical Cyclone Mangga has eased, leaving a hefty bit of damage in its wake. Thousands of homes were/are without power. On Monday morning we were shocked to see how high the Swan River was along Riverside Drive. 'The general rule of thumb is when the tide is over 1.6 meters there can be some inundation along the Swan River, and the tide is current 1.73m.' There was a serious amount of inundation! One of Perth's most photographed attractions the blue boathouse, normally seen like this was almost submerged, the surfer above walking along the totally submerged boardwalk..
The bench below sits on the grassed area well up and away from where the waves usually lap gently onto the shore and in the last two shots the waves are flowing over the wall and crashing onto the car park. It has taken me a few days to get my garden back in order so please bear with me as I catch up. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
