A devastating tornado of 213 km/h has hit hard Kurnell Wednesday morning. It had the fastest windsever to hit the state of New South Wales, according to one weather station recording. A roofing in Sydney should have been alerted to respond after the calamity.
Two individuals were sent to the hospital – one suffering shock and another suffering head injury, said an Ambulance spokesperson to the BBC.
A resident from the suburb told Sky News the storm was nearly unstoppable. This then required immediate roofing in Sydney for the repairs of their roof.
According to authorities, no one was badly hurt by the incident, but more than twenty properties have been badly ruined, for some they were now declared unliveable.
“This is most shocking to happen in the Kurnell community, especially it’s a week before Christmas,” said Phil Campbell, spokesperson of the State Emergency Service (SES). Something had to be done with the roofing in Sydney ASAP to alleviate the problem of the suburb.
SES has responded to many calls for assistance and flood rescues, including people contained inside their vehicles during flash floods.
Nearly 200 kids were obliged to vacate their classrooms in Kurnell. Roofing in Sydney should have been a response done by the local government after the devastating storm.
Meantime other residential areas including Bondi were also hardly hit. A cellular phone footage showed frightened shoppers watching a roof suddenly fall down at a Westfield mall.
A spokeswoman told AAP that one customer was hit by fragments and treated for minor injuries.
Sydney airport remains open, but the weather had caused delays in some flights, the AFP reports.
Stephen Leahy, Chief Executive of Westpac Life Saver Helicopter said, the organization’s chopper pad was flying from Kurnell. He said the base was dumped with roofing insulation that had been removed from roofs. This problem can be solved by calling roofing in Sydney as fast as they can.
The helicopters had been brought from Botany Bay to our landing pad,” Mr. Leahy told Ashley Donnelly of the BBC.
“We were stunned by the severity of the damage especially that this was a fast moving tornado.”
