The Wild Weather Rips Off A Melbourne Pier

1 min read

And off it floated. 

Melbourne's wild weather has reached winds of up to 120 km/h causing Frankston's Pier to snap off. 

A man spoke to the Herald Sun newspaper that about 10m of the pier was seen floating away with the waves:

"These weather conditions I would describe as cyclonic — extreme winds. The Frankston Pier — what we can see is the end of the pier — has come away with the force of the wind and the waves."

The Bureau of Meteorology reported winds of 95 kilometres per hour in Frankston at 9.05am. Warnings are still in place for the Mornington Peninsula and West Gippsland coast. 

Melbourne's city centre has seen the worst of it.

“I couldn’t believe the amount of ‘cheek’ I had to unwillingly view!”

We ain't mad about it.
