The SES is warning drivers to be vigilant and cautions in the wet weather, with almost 50mL of rain forecast for Newcastle and the Central Coast over the next two days.
“Just obviously stay calm, stay indoors if the weather system does intensify at the moment. Obviously listen to the news, listen to the radio, look at our social media sites or look at our SES website.” – Stephen Hart, Northern Zone Commander
Other precautions include cleaning cutters and monitoring flash flooding.
