South Australia braces for more wild weather

At least 75,000 homes are still without power in South Australia although the lights are back on in Adelaide’s metropolitan areas, as the state braces for more wild weather.

Premier Jay Weatherill says power is slowly returning to thousands of residents after super cell thunderstorms caused a state-wide blackout on Wednesday.

‘Overnight we’ve managed to restore all but 75,000 of the 900,000 homes to power, but we are not out of the woods yet – there is a very strong system that is approaching our west coast,’ he told the Nine Network.

Mr Weatherill said about 35,000 of the remaining homes without power are expected to have it restored on Thursday, but it’s unclear when thousands of west coast residents will be back on the grid.

‘There has been catastrophic damage to our energy infrastructure up in the north of the state so it will take considerable time to restore that,’ he said.

Recovery efforts are being hampered by the extreme weather, with the Bureau of Meteorology warning of more wild weather to come.

It could produce wind gusts of up to 140km/h, especially along the west coast of Eyre Peninsula and up to 100mm of rain across the Adelaide Hills, bringing the risk of flooding.

Aflood warning has also been issued for Port Pirie, north of Adelaide, because of a storm surge and high waves.

The warnings come a day after wild winds ripped at least 22 transmission towers from the ground across the mid-north with about 80,000 lightning strikes hitting the state, some damaging generation facilities.

The SES responded to more than 450 calls for help on Wednesday and strike teams from Western Australia have been brought in to bolster local crews.

‘There’s still the potential for significant severe weather damage,’ said SES chief officer Chris Beattie.

‘We do have concerns for the coastal defences.’

2016 Federal Election: Uncertain outcome as recriminations begin to fly

2016 Federal Election: Uncertain outcome as recriminations begin to fly

AUSTRALIA’s double-dissolution election has failed to hand Malcolm Turnbull the stability he wanted, instead leaving the nation in suspense as to its eventual outcome.

The National Liberal Party leader insists the final trickle of votes yet to be counted will tip him over the line of 76 seats needed for majority government. If so, he will perpetually be just one scandal away from losing power.

Labor party leader Bill Shorten also has been unable to claim government, but has declared his party ‘is back’ and that the Coalition no longer has a mandate from the people.

The prospect of a hung parliament remains.

With a little more than 77 per cent of the vote counted,after pre-poll votes were added to running totals in 150 lower house seats in the early hours of this morning, the Coalition and Labor had each won 67 seats, the Greens one and independents four.

The future Australian government will now be resolved by the 11 seats which remain in doubt. Of these, Labor is ahead in six.

Any hopes the double-dissolution election and revised electoral rules would deliver stability to Australia’s Senate may have been dashed. While the Senate count process is also yet to be completed, it appears the cross-bench will include Darryn Hinch, Jacqui Lambie, three Nick Xenophon Team senators and Pauline Hanson.

Brickwork Marketplace | Another Aspect

Brickwork Marketplace | Another Aspect

Brickwork marketplace ,now big cool mall , including  Woolworths Dan murphy , cibo tony and marks and hand car wash ( Touch N Glow ) . It also has more than 40 speciality shops and 700 on- grade car park and proven favorite franchises such as cibo.

brickworks market adelaide

Brickworks market Adelaide

Now we have a hand car wash there when people need their car wash they can get it done, while shop.

But bank branch and a post office is required at brickwork marketplace. People really need post office services at marketplace.

Before a big mall it was a local market, famous for vegetables and other trendy reasonable kid toys, at that time it was two story dumps.

People love visiting here on Saturday Sunday, at night time people used to bring their muscle cars, under lights. It was really scenic.

Lot of childhood memories are buried.

When Woolworths took over the place they fill all dumped place with huge amount of soil, to fill two story dump.

At the moment big Woolworth mall is here, locals, especially women are relived, cause another market is around 4-5 kms away.

Yesterday i was thinking about another prospect of brickwork market place.

Adelaide oval is a stadium in Adelaide, South Australia, located in the parklands between the city centre and north Adelaide.

The stadium is mostly used for cricket and Australian Rules football, but also plays host to rugby league union, soccer, and concerts. Its record crowd for cricket was 52,633 during the 2014-15 big bash league season semi-finals between the Adelaide strikers and Sydney sixers,

From Adelaide oval brickwork marketplace is only 5-7 kms away.

In city there is lack of space for car parking. If somehow manage to build local transport from brickwork marketplace to Adelaide oval, it can be great for fans and as a facility.

Cause brickwork marketplace was already two stories down. If they build underground car parking, car parking spaces could be highly increased 700 to 1000 parking.

In city they charge average 12-13$ for night. But if they will charge even $5 per night for a one car. Govt and council can earn $2000- $5000 per night on weekends. Underground car parking would be Great idea.

Brickwork marketplace if some one has more suggestion please let us know in comment box..

Flooding forecast for Adelaide Hills as sandbags are offered to residents

May 27, 2016 by

Flooding forecast for Adelaide Hills as sandbags are offered to residents
Trees have been felled by severe weather in the Adelaide Hills.

Trees have been felled by severe weather in the Adelaide Hills.

The State Emergency Service (SES) has attended about 40 jobs today related to the cold front.

Fallen trees have brought down power lines, while minor flooding and damage to roofs has kept volunteers busy.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for Adelaide, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Kangaroo Island and Mid North districts.

The SES has warned forecast rain could cause localised flooding in parts of the Torrens, Onkaparinga rivers and the North Para catchment.

More than 30 millimetres of rain has fallen over the area already this week and up to 50 millimetres more is forecast today.

Already this month Adelaide has received 69.4 millimetres of rain, more than the previous 60.3 millimetre record.

Localised damaging winds with gusts of in excess of 90 kilometres per hour (kph) are possible following the front which will include showers and thunderstorms, the warning said.

A wind gust of 111kph was recorded at Neptune Island this morning.

Sandbags available if needed

With minor flooding possible in the Mount Lofty Ranges this afternoon, SA Police said 4,000 empty sandbags for residents at risk of flooding had been moved to Gumeracha CFS Brigade and Nuriootpa CFS Brigade.

The site will remain open until 3pm.

The sandbags are in addition to the 6,000 bags pre-positioned by the SES in the Mount Lofty Ranges yesterday.

Powerlines & tree on road blocks traffic in Adelaide Hills. More bad weather forecast with flood warning in place

Burnside Council have filled sandbags available if needed from their depot on the corner of Greenhill and Glynburn roads, in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs.

Simon Ching from the Bureau of Meteorology said the flood risk would be highest early this afternoon.

“The showers will become quite heavy from the morning, before most people get up,” he said.

He said once the rainfall accumulated, flooding would be a “real concern”.

“It’s the afternoon that the risk of flooding will be higher and we expect the showers should be easing off from around late evening period,” Mr Ching said.

The SES said people should ensure loose items such as outdoor furniture were secured and vehicles were parked undercover and away from trees.

Meanwhile, a section of a scenic route from Adelaide to the Barossa Valley has been closed as a precaution due to the forecast.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure said Gorge Road was closed between Playford Bridge and Torrens Hill Road due to fears of unexpected rock falls.
