Default Commuter nightmare as major storm lashes Sydney

Commuter nightmare as major storm lashes Sydney
Full story: 1bcbf4ee5969a85100-1543412116

Those who did not heed warnings to “leave work early” are facing a
horror commute home following the largest November storm for more than
three decades.

Flooded tracks, roads and underpasses as well as fallen trees have led
to the closure of a number of stations on Sydney’s north shore.

In Brisbane, the situation is equally miserable — all train lines in
both directions from Central Station are experiencing delays of up to 60

This morning, a teenager tragically died on the treacherous roads and
two police officers were seriously injured when a tree fell on their car.

The 14-year-old boy was a passenger in a car being driven by a friend,
17, when it crashed with another vehicle.

An SES volunteer also died this afternoon after collapsing in Sydney
while on duty.

There have been several other injuries and almost 50 car crashes on
roads awash with water.

Police have said the conditions are “horrendous” and the “worst we’ve
seen” following a storm. They have implored motorists not to drive
through floodwaters, with 12 people having been rescued on Wednesday.

Heavy rain hits Sydney

While the rain has eased in Sydney, the low pressure system is expected
to swing around for a second dumping on the city later today. That could
be combined with fierce winds of up to 90km/h that may knock over
already waterlogged trees.

Gusts of 74 km/h have been recorded on Sydney Harbour, 74 km/h in
Wollongong and 95 km/h in Maitland.

Since 5am Sydney CBD has seen 124mm of rainfall, Olympic Park 87mm, Moss
Vale 74mm, Nowra 133mm, Norah Head on the Central Coast 67mm and Bega
42mm. Although Wollongong, which was right in the firing line, has seen
45mm which was less than expected.
