Max wind speed: ?

David has asked me to resurrect the photo of the damage to the house of my uncle, Leslie Warren and his family at 19 Broadwood Road caused by the typhoon of 24 July 1930, so that it can be added to the Typhoon Timeline. Here is the link to that https://gwulo.com/atom/21392 The annual Botanical and Forestry Report is a good source for finding records and dates of typhoons, as it reports the damage to trees in the colony.

There's another photo of my cousins sitting on the destroyed wall between their house and "The Towers". When I've mastered the software for our new printer/scanner I'll post it.


Here is a copy of the  post-1930 typhoon photo:
