According to Reuters, Sydney residents have been warned that the weather conditions can worsen. So far, evacuation warnings have been sent out to some areas with some being warned to leave the area immediately.
Assistance is being sent to flood-affected areas in Sydney
To date, Sydney has been inundated once again for the fourth time in 18 months. Thus far, Federal Emergency minister Murray Watt shared that the increasing change in weather is due to climate change.
With this, Murray stated that climate change should be taken more seriously. Right now, floods have been reported to have fallen to as high as 300mm. However, this could increase with time.
For safety reasons, residents are urged to evacuate their homes until it is safe to return again. Presently, the floods return at a time when some roads have not been fixed since the previous floods months ago.
