Sydney's extreme weather and storms

Sydney has been having extreme storms these last couple of weeks.

Storm events can cause substantial damage to property and infrastructure as well as place the health and safety of people at risk. The increasing frequency and intensity of these events means you need to be aware of the potential impacts and be prepared for extreme storms which is intense rainfall, hail, and high wind speeds.

Weak trees can pose potential hazards to the public during floods and extreme storms. Removing weak trees can reduce the risk of injury from tree debris.

Help reduce flood risks by having your drains clear of leaf litter and debris, rain gardens installed to help capture water run-off and retain and slow the water entering drains during heavy rainfall. This also helps reduce pressure on the drains. Rai
