RENEWED MODERATE TO MAJOR FLOOD WARNING FOR HAWKESBURY FROM SUNDAY – BOM at 1.50pm
Just when you thought it was over – or at least improving – the Bureau of Meteorology has issued a new Amber Warning Flood Watch for the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley.
From Sunday into Monday and Tuesday heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are forecast across parts of the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley and then extending into the Hunter, Paterson, Williams, Gloucester, and Manning Rivers. This rainfall has the potential to cause renewed river level rises to areas already impacted by flooding.
Moderate to major flooding is possible. The weather system is expected to cause local and riverine flooding for the coastal rivers from the Manning to the Hawkesbury-Nepean.
Flood classes (minor, moderate, major) are only defined for catchments where the Bureau provides a flood warning service. Catchments likely to be affected include:
Hawkesbury and Lower Nepean Rivers – moderate to major flooding
Upper Nepean River – moderate to major flooding Upper Coxs River – no specific details yet Colo River – moderate flooding Macdonald River – no specific details yet
Here are the flood watch areas likely to be affected from Sunday through to Tuesday
