Chris Lewis, who resides in Geraldton, in the mid-west part of Western Australia, filmed the videos, showing sand blasting towards the sea amid reddish-brown skies.

Around 50,000 customers were left without power on Monday (May 25) due to storm-related outages, utility Western Power said, as the remnants of Cyclone Mangga hit a cold front and brought squalling rain and emergency level storm warnings to the south of the state.

Reported that wind speeds of up to 132 km/hour (82 mph) were registered at Cape Leeuwin early on Monday, one of the state's most south-westerly points, making them the strongest May gusts in 15 years.
