Areas west of Sydney left as wild weather condition continues in NSW
Residents of flood-hit locations west of Sydney were bought to leave on Saturday night as wild weather condition continued to hammer New South Wales.
Flooding cautions remained in location for about 18 locations of Australia’s most populated state on Sunday as heavy rain continued to fall.
On Saturday night the NSW State Emergency Service (SES bought anybody in low-lying locations of Agnes Banks, Pitt Town Bottoms, Pitt Town North, Cornwallis, Gronos Point and North Richmond, some 50 kilometres west of Sydney on the Hawkesbury river, to leave.
The NSW Bureau of Meteorology (BoM alerted of additional heavy rains and destructive winds on Sunday early morning, with an extreme weather condition caution covering practically 900 kilometres of the coast from Wollongong, south of Sydney, to Lismore near the border with Queensland.
An extreme weather condition caution was likewise in location simply west ofCanberra“We are expecting to see river levels that had started to just recede slightly … peak again probably later today and potentially even again tomorrow as the rainfall comes back for a third hit,” SES Deputy Commissioner Daniel Austin informed the Today Show on Channel 9.
Austin included that SES was preparing their operations “well past Easter,” which falls in 2 weeks’ time. “Unfortunately, of course, just because the rain stops it doesn’t mean that the rivers go back [to normal levels] straight away.”
The heavy rain was anticipated to keep falling on NSW till Wednesday early morning at the earliest.
“This will be a deep-seated, extreme weather event,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian stated on Saturday.
