Professor Offord makes Queen’s Birthday Honours List

Ocean Shores resident and Emeritus Professor, Baden Offord, has been named on the Queen’s Birthday 2021 Honours List, ‘For distinguished service to tertiary education in the field of human rights, social justice, and cultural diversity’.

The Bureau of Meteorology says there is now a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for damaging winds, heavy rainfall and large hailstones for people in the Central West Slopes and Plains and parts of Central Tablelands, Southern Tablelands, South West Slopes and Lower Western Forecast Districts.

There is a Flood Watch for the Orara, Bellinger, Hastings, Manning, Paterson and Williams Rivers. After days of rain, local soils may be saturated, requiring increased vigilance about the potential for flooding.

With thunderstorms expected to continue over large parts of the state over the coming days, residents are urged to keep up with the latest warnings from the Bureau.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
