This Week In The Loft

Flash Flood in the Melbourne CBD

I love these photos that people submitted to the newspaper yesterday showing the flash flood that occurred in the Melbourne CBD on Thursday.   I actually left work a little earlier than usual because I could see the huge storm rolling in and I didn’t want to be stuck in the middle of it.   I had not idea it was this severe!  These photos are taken in the blocks around the Loft.   The water disappeared as quickly as it had appeared.   I’m assuming that most of it ran off in to the Yarra River which is right behind the train station above.

I was shooting for a docu-drama on friday night and when I left the set the roads were flooded and we were driving through almost hip deep water. There were alot of cars that got stuck, very similar to the taxi above. Scary stuff!
