    i live in south gippsland at a place called inverloch

    last night at 5.30 a storm passed seemingly out of know where it was hot and calm then came the hail stones about the size of large marbells and some to golf balls then through some parts of town the wind blew the strongest i have ever seen and we got 1.5 inches of rain in about 45 min

    as an ses worker we were very busy with trees down roofes blown off and alot of stuff picked up an throwen through housed is was very strange

    We got nothing where i live in the eastern suburbs.

    Hopefully a lot of other places got that rain down there. I frequent the island most weekends and i know theyre down to 25% storage level with a lot of places worse off than them even.
