Flash flooding from Winter Storms in Sydney 16th July 2013

A storm produced flash flooding as 15mm fell in 15 minutes at North Ryde! It is unusual for storms to occur during winter so this storm cell was a surprise particularly its intensity! The storm was spawned near the Riverstone Schofields corridor and intensified as it moved over Baulkham Hills Castle Hill district finally dumping torrential rain over the North Ryde area. The storm then drifted east and gradually weakened. A boy was swept into a creek or river at the height of the storm.
