How to Prepare for a Flood or Storm
During heavy rains and storms keep up with advice issued by the Bureau of Meteorology and pay attention to warnings that may affect the area you live in.
Northern Beaches Flood Watch
Northern Beaches Council's floodplain team monitors lagoon levels 24/7, and Northern Beaches Flood Watch provides the latest data on rainfall and water levels in the area. It also provides an indication if flooding is likely.
Watch out for electrical hazards hidden in storm debris. Fallen trees and flood waters can hide fallen powerlines. DO NOT touch fallen powerlines and always assume they are live. Stay at least 8 metres away from it and anything it may be touching. REPORT fallen powerlines and call triple zero (000).
