Western Australia is hit by a storm that occurs once in a decade. Strong winds and heavy rain hit most of this state in western Australia, as the British news site BBC reports.
The dramatic weather was caused by a collision between the former tropical cyclone Mangga and a cold air front, according to the Meteorological Office of Western Australia.
