Yesterday Geelong became a centre of strong storm that hit Victoria. A family from the city tell how they woke up in the middle of the night because of noise of ruining home. Part of the roof has disappeared and all the windows in the house are broken. People ran out from their houses, they did not understand what was going on. Winds reached 100 km/h in some places in Victoria.
SES of Victoria informs that about 60 houses have suffered during the night storm in Geelong. Now almost all of them have been repaired.
The meteorologists say that similar storm can happen in Melbourne, they are also expecting about 20 mm of precipitation today.
Three years ago some Melbourne resident Samandeep Singh killed an officer after knocking her down with the truck. Later the killer said that his truck's brakes did not work in a proper way. It turned out that he had known about it before the accident. Singh pleaded guilty for killing and after that made a tattoo with a police number of the policewoman in honour of her.
But the killer had some suicidal inclines while being in custody, so his lawyer demanded safety for his client in the hospital. After that Singh was being treated in mental health facility. However, today the court accused him of killing on purpose. Singh will be sentenced next week. Now he wants to return to India, his native land.
A woman who lives near Five Mile Creek in Melbourne turned to environmental forces of the state, saying that the water in the creek coloured in chemical green colour. She added that pollution of Melbourne water is common, but not in this measure.
EPA examined the water and made conclusion that there was a plumber dye in the water. It is not dangerous at all and biodegradable. They added it was hard to find the source of such a pollution. It started from a stormwater outlet not far away.
EPA warns that pollution of any kind is dangerous for flora and fauna which are quite developed on the shores and will praise anyone who informs about pollutions or violatings.
