As you may have heard, the people of Newcastle have experienced strong winds and flooding in the last day. I just spoke with my friend Kate in Newcastle to make sure she’s okay and she is, although she has lost quite a few windows and her backyard is covered in glass.
Although she lives right in town, she’s escaped the flooding that has affected Hunter Street, because she lives on the higher part of the old sand dunes.
One of the many consequences of the winds has been the stranding of two large carriers. Kate went along and recorded some video.
