WA: Storm causes damage, blackouts around perth. Fri 4 Oct 2019. A rapidly deepening low with a central pressure of 998hPa ploughed into the WA coast just south of Perth late Friday afternoon causing damage and downing powerlines, cutting power to over 25,000 premises. Ahead of the low, a front which crossed the area late morning also brought damaging winds. [Andrew Miskelly, ABC]

Record high wind gusts for October were recorded around mid-afternoon at six locations in the Perth area, the highest 107km/h on Rottnest Island. Heavy rain fell, mostly with the passage of the low across the state's South West. Several places in the Central Wheat Belt and along the South Coast recorded up to 16mm in an hour (see downpours), while general falls from the system around Perth, the South West and South Coast were between 25 and 40mm.
