Wet Weather Keeps Coast Emergency Services Busy

Coast spared Hunter’s heavy rainfall

Wet Weather Keeps Coast Emergency Services Busy Chittaway Rural Fire Brigade

Chainsaws and sandbags have been out across the Coast overnight, as the wet weather made its presence felt.

SES volunteers responded to 23 calls for help in the Wyong area, and another 19 in Gosford, mainly dealing with fallen trees and leaking roofs.

The Weather Bureau’s forecast for heavy rains never quite materialised, but Jilliby's seen the biggest drenching on the Coast since 9:00am yesterday with 46mm.

While Kangy Angy received 34mm, 19mm for Gosford, and 33mm for Lisarow.

Meantime, it was a different story in the Hunter, with several spots receiving more than 200mm, and moderate flood warnings for the town of Dungog.

 

Post

Despite slightly lower than expected falls on the Coast, we saw a dangerous day on the roads.

The Rural Fire Service says it attended a numbers of car accidents and oil spills due to wet roads, among them, one car crash on the Pacific Highway at Ourimbah left a truck on its side.

Emergency services are asking us to drive to conditions as showers are possible over the next few days.

We're still on alert for localised flooding around the Coast, but there's no longer a severe weather warning for the area.
