Australia’s Most Populated State Still Faces A Flood Risk



Dean Narramore, a meteorologist from Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), told local media that although the rain stopped on Monday, flooding was still present. The expert warned that NSW should prepare for widespread rains of up to 100 mm starting on Wednesday, which could cause minor or catastrophic riverine flooding.

In NSW, there are still more than 100 flood warnings in effect, and since Friday evening, the State Emergency Service (SES) has responded to more than 1,000 calls for help and 44 flood rescues.

Landowners and farmers are urged to prepare ahead of time and report any flood damage.

According to NSW Farmers Association President Xavier Martin, even after the rain stopped, there was still a risk of flooding, which may impact people, animals, crops, pastures, roads, and railroad lines. As the full impact of a third straight La Nina is seen this summer, he urged people to exercise additional caution.
