This presentation from the Handling the Heat: Climate Change Adaptation in the Central Coast and Hunter forum discusses the severe "Pasha storm" that earned its name from stranding the Pasha Bulker cargo ship onto a popular beach near the Newcastle CBD in June 2007. The presenter explains weather patterns causing the storm, explores the impacts of power outages and flash flooding, and identifies infrastructure failures.
