I had a chat this morning at the cosy Benny’s cafe with owner Ivan Dzeba , who is the new president of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce, when a huge squall swept through the Cappuccino Strip and created horizontal rain. It looked spectacular, but I was happy to be inside.

On my way home I found this tree branch blocking Jenkin Street in South Fremantle.

NORTH FREO STORM WALL COLLAPSE

A woman was seriously injured in North Fremantle this afternoon when part of a wall at the Matilda Bay Brewery collapsed on top of her car, that was parked to the side of the building in Coventry Parade.

It appears the strong wind caused the brick rubble to fell down from the three-storey building at Stirling Highway.

Emergency services attended the scene and there are concerns that more of the wall might collapse.

STUNNING WILD WEATHER FREO!

The things I do for my readers of Freo’s View. I got soaking wet for the second time this morning and also received a lot of spray from the ocean, just to let you see what it looks like out there.

There was one lonely, or should that be loony, windsurfer. Can you spot him in the top right photo?

How gorgeous is nature when it is this wild!

WILD WEATHER IN FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, rain, storm, weather, western australia by freoview on May 21, 2016

 

Strong winds have done a bit of damage but I haven’t heard anything about major damage yet. A few fences down, branched of palm trees along riverside drive in East Fremantle broken of, flooding in Cliff Street and the moles closed by Fremantle Ports, and more wild weather in the way with possible severe thunder and hail.

If you know of any severe damage in the Fremantle area let me know please. roel.loopers@iinet.net.au

TIE THE KANGAROO, and everything else, DOWN FREO!

The wind is already very strong and showers obscured the view from Arthur Head to Fremantle harbour this morning, but there is more sever weather to come. Expect big storms, thunder and even hail later today, so tie everything down outside and try to keep out of the rain. It’s not a great start to the school holidays and to keep the kids occupied, but things will hopefully improve soon.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre has got the Little Prince on show, so book your seats! Your children will love you for it.
