The rain is tonight being called a ‘storm emergency.’  I stay inside when it is raining heavily, so always miss what is happening down at the Cooks River.  Not today.  I decided to brave the weather & take some photos.

The flooding was not as bad as I expected.  The Cooks River at 1pm, high tide time, was around 20 cm below the bank, but I saw a photo on Facebook where the river had breached the bank this morning.

Unfortunately a tree is down in Mackey Park.  From what I could see trees did pretty well considering the destructive winds we have been experiencing.  The Weather Bureau says more destructive winds can be expected, which may reach speeds of 125km/hour.  Stay safe.
