Sydney, Australia has been getting pummeled with storms for the past month.
Today, The Guardian reports that a month's worth of rain fell on parts of Sydney when an area of low pressure passed slowly over the city towards the Illawarra. The State Emergency Service (SES) received more than 160 calls for help, with flash flooding affecting homes, and a number of trees falling in parts of Sydney
The Bureau of Meteorology said 98mm of rain fell just in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney. The median monthly rainfall for all of Sydney is 97mm.
Earlier this month, the Washington Post photographed some Independence Day storm cells over Sydney.
With all these reports (and by just looking up into the sky), this crew still went out. They were caught in the middle of one hellacious storm. Fishing World reports that Australia has borne the brunt of some pretty impressive storm activity. In this video shot last week, a crew on board a trailer boat captured the action as they headed into the eye of a big storm off Sydney's Broken Bay.
