Maybe it was 60-70 clicks from the burbs... I didn't ask specifics. They told us the "nearest" town, but I don't remember it.... and of course didn't recognize it. (Why would I?) and I could have heard him wrong... my hearing isn't so great... it sounded remote from his description... but I don't recall much details about the location.
Amazing you've done so well... I'm in awe... I know how hard that is...
Most of Western Australia is remote. The electoral division of Kalgoorlie Electors 80,773 Area 2,295,354 km2 (886,241.1 sq mi)- over 90 percent of the state's landmass (an area the size of France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Poland and Great Britain combined).Which is the largest electorate in the world.

(Grand Chain, IL)--One person is dead and five injured as a tornado rips through the Pulaski County.
According to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department, Steve Kohn was killed while protecting his son in his basement. Kohn was a computer science professor at Cairo High School and chief negotiator for the teacher's union.
Most of damage was along Tick Ridge Road, with trees uprooted, homes destroyed and debris covering county roads.
Rescue personnel and volunteers continue searching for the injured, but according to a deputy with the sheriff's department, everyone in the area is accounted for.
As Paul Krugman points out, as the weather and disasters worsen, the Climate Change deniers are going to look awfully naive and stupid.
FYI- We've never had 2 Category 4 hurricanes in one season...we've had 3 horrific disasters in a matter of weeks... Harvey, Irma, and Maria. AND the season isn't over yet ! Is this an exception or the new "Norm"?
NOT that I'm wishing for more -I didn't want the 3 we got; but as the old TV commercial said "It's not nice to fool Mother nature !! (thunder boom)
We were playing @ Pirate's Broadcast Station out of Tick Ridge, Missouri, he was filling requests and the rest of us were chatting and having a grand time.. ..when Pirate (aka "Johnny Angel") suddenly said, "OH OH... the wind is whipping up and rain is pouring in the windows..!"
...then all of a sudden the power went out!
HOLY SNIKIEY! That's as close to getting hit by a tornado that I've ever been,
When I looked on a weather feed, it was ridiculously LOCAL. as in "Sacre' Breu!" (From of Heaven ((The Sacred Blue)) )
I've been lucky- I live in tornado alley and I've never seen one. However since we moved to TX we've had 3 in Lindale. One wiped out our Dollar Tree and a local sporting goods business. One blew down my neighbor's fence that borders our backyard, and took a chunk of shingles off our roof. One had a wide swath and took out a bunch of homes in Lindale and just N of us.
Oh but the climate is fine... it's not changing !!
I lived outside of Dallas for a while during the '60's. I was curious about what appeared to be cellar doors out in the backyard but not attached to the house(?)
When I asked the little girl who lived there about it she kinda' cocked her head sideways and looked at me like "ignorant Yankee" and said matter-of-factly; "Why That's the TOR-NA-DO SHELTER."
FREAKED ME RIGHT OUT!
Time for THIS FREAK To Get-The-Freak Outta' Here!"
Since then we had one in 'Jersey (RARITY) unbenownst to me, it just happened to have struck along the exact route between my apartment & where I had to drive to pick up Ted, so I got to see the damage up-close & personal.
Down a grassy hill used by kids to sled down in Winter, Hit the wall to the raised overpass of Rt21 toward Newark, hopped the highway (and the Passaic River) and landed in the river-side park on the far shore, crossed the main street and tore the roof off the biggest car dealership in the area.
Seeing the swath of lawn as neatly removed as if by a road scraper, and 50 year old willows in the park twisted and splintered to kindling freaked me out... weird to see the roof peeled back, and none of the cars damaged... .....actually, it was a real gut-shot.. nearly lost my lunch!
"TORNADO ALLEY"? nah.. doanwanna' hear dat noise @ ALL!
