Local flooding Sydney and Brisbane

Recommended Posts

Torrential rain has caused local flooding in Sydney and Brisbane.  The dams, which were low level, are now filling with water.  

 

The rain is widespread along the East Coast, with more rain predicted.  Now we are looking for flooding warnings in lieu of fire warnings.  

 

No doubt the SES has been run off their feet, with heavy demand.

 

An Australian summer - fires, drought and floods.  However, everyone is happy to see rain at long last. 

 

Keep safe everyone.  Don't drive through floodwater.  "If it is flooded, forget it!"

Thanks for the laugh. 

Does all this rain along the East Coast mean rough seas for cruise ships along the Coast?

I have only been sea sick twice in my life and one was on a Manly Ferry cruise to Palm Beach.

Yes rough seas for a few days. Someone on another thread mentioned six metre seas off Sydney yesterday or the day before that.

They do say because of the extra heat it keeps water in the atmosphere for longer till it is heavy enough to fall and by then it results in torrential downpour. Either way I do prefer the rain to the dry🌧️.

Wet rain is so much better than the dehydrated rain, that stuff falls as dust and you need to add tap water to make it into plant drink.
