Some of the heaviest widespread rains in years have battered the Sydney metropolitan area with even Newcastle bringing back memories of the 2007 flood event! Strong winds and persistent heavy rainfall have produced localised flooding in low lying areas as an east coast low rapidly developed near Newcastle. This morning, the lightning tracker shows a band of storms on the northern side of the system.

    Pre-planning is an important point from both Governments and the public. The restrictions on lobbing is also an issue that arises after major bush fires but the shear widespread scale of this disaster has highlighted such a need for this to be applicable prior to storm events. Obviously a regular maintenance is quite important!
