25/01/16 - Storm Factory/Canberra Chase.

What started out as a frustrating day soon turned in to an amazing storm filled afternoon.

A storm near Michelago kept us on our toes with bolts everywhere including getting a little too close for comfort at a mire 600m away and then to ensure we got the message to move along one at just 200m away just as we got in to the car!

This trend continued as we moved to a new location with bolts raining down with in the 200 to 400m bracket.

Mundubbera QLD Storm - 29/12/2015

The 29th of November saw us chasing 300 kms north west of Brisbane to the town of Mundubbera.

We were able to get ahead of this massive storm which gave us sustained 80-100km/h winds,with stronger gusts, for over half an hour along with torrential rain. No hail, just a true rain monster.

Lightning was insane inside the core with non stop flashing, and numerous close strikes with loud bangs of thunder. It felt like a true tropical storm This 2 minute shows some high lights from the storm. With Chris Adams.
