Lennox disaster amazes Premier
NSW Premier Kristina Keneally was amazed that no one was seriously injured or killed in the tornado that ripped through Lennox Head yesterday morning.
Ms Keneally was visiting with residents affected by the disaster early this morning before heading back to Sydney for another day of Parliament.
"We've declared this a disaster so local councils can now focus on managing clean up efforts," she said.
Ms Keneally said emergency services were used to seeing storm damage but the scale of the Lennox Head disaster and the ferocity of the tornado had shocked them.
