Quantum awning tipped apart

Our last night in Broome.....well, that's what we thought. We were sitting outside watching a storm developing in the east over Roebuck Bay and I was taking photos of the lightning, enjoying the wonderful view. We finished watching the spectacular storm in the distance then lit the Weber to cook a pizza and suddenly the wind picked up and became stronger and stronger. Earlier, I secured the awning poles with extra ropes and was confident that it would withstand the storm but the wind picked up more and became gale force strength. I tried to hold onto the awning pole but the debris was flying at such a force towards me that I decided it would be safer inside the Quantum and as I entered the Quantum a huge gust ripped the awning apart and tore it off completely.
So, we now have to get the awning fixed or replaced first before we can depart from Broome....and that might take time.
