North Coast residents are being urged to be prepared for an extremely wet weekend, with forecasts indicating up to 300 mm or rain will fall over the next few days.
The Richmond/Tweed branch of the SES has said that while the wet weather was not likely to be anywhere near as bad at what followed Cyclone Debbie last month, ‘we’d like to remind everyone to prepare now’
‘Now’s the time to make preparations and monitor the storm situation… thunderstorms are highly variable and may form quickly,’ the brach said in a statement.
‘The NSWSES can’t always put out an official #warning before #storms begin to impact your area so it’s important to be aware of the weather situation and the likely affect on you.
‘Monitor the local situation by watching the weather around you; maintaining contact with other people in your local community and local #radio stations and other media to receive updates on the situation in nearby areas.
