Another line of storms cranking up. Tops can be seen easily from far northern suburbs of Perth.

The shopping centre up at Clarkson had flooding on Friday. Part of the roof had collapsed and sent water gushing down.

Saw a lot of lightning from my mate's house near Ocean Reef last night. Was beautiful weather where we were, lightning went for 5 hours (I went home after but it was probably still going).

What shopping centre was that?

Edit: asked my mum and she said it was the new part of ocean keys. Only open for a few days.

Activity building again in the lower west region. Loads of Acca developing into something more (hopefully).

Currently lightning centred on the fringes of the wheatbelt near Dally.

Yeah, new shops had a ceiling collapse and hardware next door flooded also.
I'll try post a photo later of the collapsed roof. Not as bad as it sounds.

This was the temporary underpass at OceanKeys in UpperMiddleClaarrrkson

The new part was open a couple of days. Roof leaked like it was made of fly screen.
Flooded Coles too.

One of my shots from Ocean Reef last night. :) Haven't seen such an active lightning storm in ages. It started approaching the coast about 8:15pm and I followed it down the coast to the city until about 2am and then headed home.

Started near Kwinana then headed south to get through the rain. Spent a bit if time at Mandurah (PWL Steve on same beach. Top fella) before heading back up north. This one was off Paganoni rd, pretty much straight from cameraImage. Plenty of images to get through! Will put good ones on here and cloudtogroundimages

My favourite shot from last night. "Better" ones are here http://cloudtogroundimages.com/2014/03/ ... g-at-last/ but this one was the coolest to capture, out near Serpentine, the rain lashing down, and CG's smashing all around me. Taken through the windshield with my camera balanced on the wheel and the rain and wiper getting in the way!

My nephew and I are driving to Kalbarri on Wednesday. We will be using the Indian Ocean Drive and the standard drive through the mighty "megalopolis" of Binnu. Our departure time will be about 7.30 am with arrival in Kalbarri about 3.30 pm.

There are isolated showers and thunderstorms forecast for the entire route. How likely are we to drive under or near a storm during the trip?
