STAY INFORMED about predicted minor flooding on the Hawkesbury, Nepean, and Colo Rivers.

The Bureau of Meteorology advises a low pressure system currently off the Mid North Coast of New South Wales will move further south during Monday and Tuesday, bringing moderate to heavy rain to central parts of the coast.
This rainfall may cause minor flooding to some river systems along central and southern parts of the coast, including the Hawkesbury, Nepean and Colo Rivers.
Low-lying areas along the rivers may be impacted by floodwater.
If you have a Home and/or Business Emergency Plan, review it now. Otherwise, have a conversation and plan for what you will do and take with you if you need to evacuate.
If you are likely to be isolated due to flooding, stock up on essential items now.
Farmers should consider moving pumps and farm equipment to higher ground.
