SITUATION UPDATE – July 5, 2022
Heavy rains continues to hit east coast of Australia since February this year. As of last week, many parts of Sydney are overflown with flood causing more than 50,000 people in western suburbs to Sydney to evacuate. This recent flood have taken one live, and the rain is expected to continue in the coming week.
Since the end of February, the east coast of Australia has experienced a series of severe El Niño weather events bringing record rain falls, and at times gale-force winds.
The county’s worst floods in recorded history occurred in SE Queensland and northern NSW in late February and early March this year, were followed by flooding as far south as Sydney, causing the horrific scenarios of submerged towns and rescues from rooftops in towns such as Lismore that the world saw in the media. In early April, a second round of flooding hit the east coast from SE Queensland and NSW as far south as Sydney, submerging many of the same homes, businesses, farms and vital infrastructure that had previously been impacted.
Emergency response services, primarily the SES, have been working without a break since February.
