I live in New SouthWales, Australia, about 1.1/2 hours. drive north from Sydney along the expressway.(Interestingly it usually takes a storm 3 hours later to reach us).
It’s not the same with tsunamis f course.
NSW is a huge area. Just below the bulge on the right-hand side of the map – the east coast. Our cool winds come from Antartica, our hot winds come straight off the Simpson Desert in Central Australia. The United Kingdom fits x4. times into NSW on the map. My geography has always been hopeless. I do know that I have lived mostly upside down since 1972!
I live on a huge coastal lake, linked by the Swansea channel. When the sea is rough, the lake is very choppy. If a big tsunami comes, it won’t just come up the Swansea Channel, it will come straight over the low-lying areas, almost to my doorstep ,according to the map. Phew that is close! If the bushfires dont get us first. That is on the other map. The links are below.
I cant swim. C’est la vie. Que sera sera. Lalalala.
