Strong gusts of wind send trampoline flying | Photos

STRONG gusts of wind had unanchored trampolines flying high on Sunday. 

The Bureau of Meteorology forecast southwesterly winds at 15 to 20 kilometres an hour tending southerly at 20 to 25 kilometres an hour. 

Kids Safe spokesman Jason Chambers said manufacturers recommend to disassemble or move trampolines to a sheltered location when anticipating severe weather.

“In terms of trampolines for private backyards, there are products like grand anchors, which can be purchased to anchor the trampoline to the ground,” he said.

Horsham’s Kelly Gardner had her trampoline caught by the wind.

She said she was inside when her house started to shake at 1.20pm. She described the wind as a “mini-tornado.”

“All the pool equipment and furniture had landed in the pool and then we realised the trampoline was missing,” she said. 

The trampoline was found in her back alley, which caused damaged to her shed.
