    Gale force winds rip through the Hunter
    Monday, 25 August 2003

    Gale force WNW winds in the last 24 hours have caused minor, but widespread damage across the Lower Hunter. The winds, which were at the strongest between 7 to 9pm last night, caused havoc along the NSW coast. The strongest wind gust in the Hunter was 114 km/h recorded at Nobbys Head at 7:30 last night. Many other places recorded wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h at around the same time.

     

    The strong winds were a result of a low pressure system that was lying in the southern parts of the Tasman Sea. Many areas of NSW felt the force of the low pressure system, with strong to gale force winds reported in the Southern Tablelands, Central Tablelands, Southwest Slopes, South Coast, Metropolitan and the Hunter meteorological districts.
