“Very dangerous” storms brought severe flooding to coastal areas south of Sydney on February 9, the Bureau of Meteorology said, with flood warnings also in place for Sydney itself.
The Bureau of Meteorology said “very dangerous slow-moving storms” had developed between Wollongong and Sydney, with intense rainfall and flash flooding.
Ashlea Milinkovic recorded from her home in Stanwell Park as the road outside turned into a torrent of floodwater. “There was a road there, now there is a river in front of our house,” she said.
Emergency services said they had carried out 31 flood rescues across the Illawarra and Greater Sydney regions, the ABC reported. Rainfall totals of up to 177 mm an hour were recorded, the broadcaster said. Credit: Ashlea Milinkovic via Storyful
