There was a lot of damage in our northern areas....infrastructure damaged at Carnarvon as well as many of their crops damaged (bananas in particular) so Cyclone Olwyn did make herself felt and of course in other towns there were roofs damaged and some flooding too.
We had been warned it would continue down the coast and eventually arrive over Perth as a rain bearing depression (a low). Cyclones are notorious for being difficult and all the wonderful rain we were anticipating just didn't arrive. The skies looked quite threatening and promising but didn't produce what we had hoped for. (I took these two photos from our back garden this afternoon. 1) looking towards the north-west and 2) to the south-west):
I am hoping as the low moves towards Albany that people will be spared any damage to their homes etc., but that they will get some much wanted rain that missed us almost completely.
