THE strongest winds to hit Sydney in at least six years have blown boats ashore, torn off rooftops and delayed transport and traffic. Sydney's coastal suburbs were the worst affected as winds tore down a 50 metre by 20 metre roof at Manly's St Paul's Cathedral, forcing the evacuation of more than 700 people at the school. Half of the roof of a nine-storey building in North Sydney was peeled off. Fallen power lines left about 28,000 Sydney homes without power for significant periods, an Energy Australia spokesman said.
So is it related to the storm in the antarctic or is it totally unrelated?
Issued at 10:49 am EST on Saturday 11 August 2012.
A deep low pressure trough in the Tasman Sea and a strong high pressure system
near Adelaide are producing strong to gale force south to southwesterly winds
along the NSW coast. As the low moves northeastwards over the Tasman Sea today,
winds along southern parts of the coast will slowly ease.

Weird, there was a thread a few days ago predicting a big tsunami hitting Sydney.
Okay - I didn't know how common the storms are.
I did know it was winter......I can only dream.
