Stormy weather: what to do in an emergency

Last modified on 05 April 2024

Heavy rains have hit the Willoughby local government area overnight and are forecast to continue throughout the day and into tomorrow.

Residents are advised that severe storms can produce strong winds and torrential rain. Flash flooding can occur due to increased surface runoff and gale force winds can damage roofs, trees and power lines.

You can protect yourself from storms by staying inside and sheltering well clear of windows, doors and skylights. If driving, stay clear of flood waters. 

Fallen trees: what to do

If you have a fallen tree on your property, please contact SES 132 500.

If a tree has fallen on the street over power lines, call Ausgrid 13 13 88.
