Melbourne weather: Wild wind storms leave 40,000 homes without power with rain, hail and thunder on the way whilst in South Australia, severe winds lash state in wake of recent storm damage, body of missing man found and in Tasmania strong winds rip roof from Hobart high school, bring down power lines, trees
