Tgis was a huge event in the start of the previous wet La Nina wet years
On this day 30 years ago, has it really been 30 years....Sydney was being drenched by record rainfall with 250 - 300mm across most suburbs and 318mm in the city from memory 24hrs up to the 6th August. People were cut off and train delays were typically 4 to 5 hours. People slept in houses accommodated by people since they could not cross floodwater completely cut off St Mary's and Mt Druitt. I could not believe how rain could consistently fall for such long periods often heavy including through the night. I was so excited I went downstairs to check and simply to experience such an event I had never witnessed! Incredible event.
