Gusty storms in SA

High-based thunderstorms produced some impressive downdrafts over western and northern SA today. Wind gusted to 104km/h at Leigh Creek, north of Port Augusta, this evening. at Inkster, east of Streaky Bay on the Eyre Peninsula, a light aircraft was flipped by gusty winds.

On the 19th, successive lines of storms produced heavy rain and flash flooding during a 3-hour early afternoon period in Darwin's rural area. 24-hour totals included McMinns Lagoon 194 mm, Koolpinyah and Humpty Doo College 178 mm, Noonamah 172 mm and Elizabeth Valley 160 mm. Flash flooding was reported in the Humpty Doo area with Edwins Creek overflowing, and the Elizabeth River rose to cut the outbound lanes of the Stuart Highway about 50 km south of Darwin.
