Strong winds that battered the Western Bay yesterday caused chaos for a Greerton property owner.
The man, who only wanted to be named as Fred, came home about 4pm and found two windows in his lounge room had smashed.
"I sat down to read the paper and I saw the curtains blowing and I thought someone had broken in,'' he said.
"But I looked around and everything was still there then I looked outside and saw the trampoline on the grass.''
Strong winds had lifted a large trampoline from his neighbours property, over a 2 metre high shrub fence and onto his back lawn.
The trampoline was mangled and its metal frame had smashed two windows in Fred's Greerton home.
At the property today, Murray Blackwell from Express Glass was replacing the broken windows.
"We do get calls like this after strong winds and storms. It can cause a bit of carnage,'' he said.
The owner of the trampoline was amazed at the strength and power of the wind.
"My husband can't move it by himself, it's really heavy," she said.
"It's lucky it didn't cause any more damage.''
