Last Sunday must have been one of our hottest days. This blog recorded a temperature of 95 deg F. This evening we experienced one of the heaviest downpours in a while. It was an electrical storm which got a number of car alarms going off in unison each time thunder struck.
This rain brought some relief from the heat as well as from the possible water rationing should the water level in our dams go any lower. In spite of the heavy downpour, the temperature is still high at 86 deg F at time of writing (11:45pm). Usually, night temperature here drops to around 75 deg F. Could this be proof of global warming, I wonder.
Talk about climate changes, Perth experienced something more bizarre. The city was rained upon by hailstones as big as golf balls! See The Star's picture below..
The freak storm caused landslides and floods and residents had to be evacuated. Trains stalled and buses could not enter the city as certain roads were closed. However, MAS flights between Kuala Lumpur and Perth were not affected.
