Cyclone Alby 1978 Storm Damaged Perth
Cyclone Alby just a tropical cyclone? I think not!
Alby started in the states north as a seasonal tropical cyclone, it was supposed to be no big deal. They were wrong. All of a sudden without warning Alby did a Dr Jeckel and Mr Hyde.
Alby became a monster storm that spread across a large section of the southern half of Western Australia. Including Perth. This article is about storm damaged roofing in Perth.
But we must take a second to acknowledge the tragic loss of five lives. Alby not only tore off roofs, but he also tore apart families.
All expectations were that Alby would weaken as he made his way further south. The cyclone known as Alby had a very different idea. Instead transforming into a weather system described as an extra-tropical transition, (Roughly translated to English it means it got a lot bloody worse).
Instead of slowing and easing as predicted Alby picked up the pace and intensified as it travelled south towards Perth and beyond. No One was ready for what was to come.
The complete destruction stretched from the north of Perth all the way to Albany, Albany was hit extremely hard. There were roofs torn off from thousands of homes, offices and commercial buildings.
The storm took the coastal route surging down Cottesloe, Fremantle, Rockingham, Trigg, Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton and everywhere in between and beyond. There were power outages leaving many isolated.
Perth had to deal with its own extensive power shut down. Roads had been cut off and unlike today there was no social media or mobile telephones. Landlines were also bought down which meant complete isolation.
