Darkness Looms Over Victoria Seaside Town as Storm Clouds Roll By

While a severe thunderstorm warning for the Victoria region was shelved by the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology on April 29, some foreboding storm clouds did arrive in the area.

Video footage shows skies darkening over the seaside town of Torquay, southwest of Melbourne, early on Wednesday as storm clouds came “barrelling” through the area, as a tweet from local resident Callum Watson put it.
