Music 07/06/2016

Sydney has just experienced one of the worst storms in 40 years which resulted in 1000 evacuations and damaged coastal homes.

The raging storm had winds up to 80mph and 12 metre waves along the east coast of New South Wales.

Over 5000 calls were made to emergency services and 30,000 houses were without power.

Coastal properties collapsed and even a swimming pool was destroyed and fell into the ocean.

Aerial photographs were taken to document the abnormally high tides and dramatic wreckage. Take a look through the gallery.
