Re: 20th January 2005 – Storm outbreak

Hi Michael,

I cannot tell either way. The storm on radar seems to deviate into an easterly direction and slowly intensifies. Based on the conditions of the day with strong inflow winds, I cannot rule out tornadic winds causing the damage. The sheared off nature of the trees indicates sudden wind blasting the area. Was it from inflow jets and RFD winds or downbursts or both. Inclonclusive either way.

However, picking out some of the tornado damage in Australia is not always a clear-cut decision.

Thanks for posting!

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara
