Freak storm destroys popular fishing park

As reported in an article on The Standard website, Warrnambool police Sergeant Bec Miles said the tornado-like weather event at the popular fishing lake occurred about 12.30am on the Purrumbete Estate Road, about 15 km east of Camperdown

“Boats, cabins and white goods were caught in the high winds, with a cabin thrown 300 metres away,” she said.

“It is estimated to be over a million dollars worth of damage to the park, with debris everywhere.”

Camperdown SES unit controller Colin Brian said the park looked like a bomb site.

“I have never seen anything like it,” he said.

“When we arrived the park was in a really bad state. There were cabins and boats strewed everywhere. We could smell gas so the CFA was called in too.”

Mr Brian said there were only five people staying at the park at the time.

“I can’t believe how lucky that is,” he said.
