LAST weekend’s wild weather that saw mini tornadoes weave a path of destruction through the NSW south coast town of Kiama and up to Sydney’s eastern suburbs is also believed to be responsible for a bizarre fishy find.
According to a report today in the South Coast Register a fish of almost two metres long was discovered in the area that bore the brunt of Sunday’s tornadoes. Amazingly, the discovery took place 1.3km from the sea.
The Register reports Howard Brady from Culburra Beach took his family for a drive to see some of the damage on Tuesday.
They found what he believed was a yellowfin tuna.
“We saw that fish in amongst the flattened trees along Seven Mile Beach Road.
“It was almost six feet long and it had been damaged quite a bit.
“I think it proves that tornado came from the water and must have been very strong to pick up a fish of that size,” he said.
