I looked for some news about today's thunderstorm in Melbourne few hours ago but it still not updated. But now.. there are so many videos and photos because the storm. It said that the storm is one of the biggest and dangerous storm in Melbourne. The storm and hail cause flood in many places in Melbourne such as CBD, Flemington, Prahran, South Yarra, etc. Many public transports are stopped, cancelled and delayed because they can't run it. Furthermore, Southern Cross station is evacuated because the roof fell down and the rain came through the hole. Flinders Street station iand its subway are also flooded.

Melbourne airport was definitely affected because of the storm as there was no flight at that time. Some people also reported that there is no power in some areas like Dandenong, Airport West, Flemington, Preston and Belgrave. Moverover, many people are calling for emergency services until now. Even the danger has already passed, there are warning of storm continued in some places for the next 36 hours.

Lucky, I cancel my trip to city. Fiuhhh... I can't imagine what will happen to me if I'm in city that time. Even, in the news... they said "People who don't need to come into the city... We'd advise to stay at home." (The Age)

It's so unbelieveable. What a 10 minutes thunderstorm can bring a huge damage and chaos to Melbourne!
