Sydney is in the grips of a new flood emergency this morning, with conditions set to worsen in the coming hours. More than 30,000 residents have been told to evacuate their homes and there have been over 3000 calls to the SES for help. An East Coast Low, which has triggered serious flooding, is now threatening Sydney. Thousands of residents along the Hawkesbury-Nepean River have been forced to evacuate. The Weather Bureau says rivers will rise higher than in all 3 recent flood emergencies.. and areas that have never been inundated.. are now at risk.

It sucks when blizzard attack in Winter.
Prime minister should stop running around looking high an mighty come back to syd an do your job that’s wat Morrison did he took off
Albanese handing $100,000,000 to Ukraine while people in Australia suffer homelessness from floods and he had the gall to point the finger at Morrison.
Will Prime minister Albanese, be visiting Australia?
I lived in Windsor for many years and saw many floods when I was younger and still they haven't fixed the issues
Ridiculous how they tell people not to drive through flood waters, I mean if you have a decent 4wd fitted with a snorkel then they should mind there own business. Anyone who has watched YouTube 4wd videos know its easy.
I pray these people stay safe
Where's Albo ? We have an ongoing massive natural disaster on Australia's East Coast requiring Federal assistance in many ways and he is in Ukraine (where everyone who has a TV set) knows the carnage and destruction that has and continues to go on . You promised to lead , FHS lead .
Can you stop casting background music? Hard to hear the reporter.
Anybody recognise this music from the end of Scream?
The world is comming to an end 😁
Beautiful flooding. Hope we get more rains with apocalyptic consequences.
Not a fan of Australians….good luck
Why is Moby on in the background?
Lets build low bridges and put housing developments on flood plains…makes sense to someone.
Wow these once in a thousand year flood seem to be happening every year.
There's a new term for resumes…in water technicians.
People should listen if they don't they should get a heavy find
Lockdown 🛒🛍️ shopping 🚙🚕
Close train 🚆 🌧️
Morrison went on holiday to Hawai'i. Albanese is already on a diplomatic mission to Ukraine, which I fully support, and is a far cry from buggering off midway through a national emergency to take time with the family with no notice given to anyone. There are response measures in place, this is strawman baling at best. Also very telling there are so many bots active in these news threads.
enough people to help. that's rubbish Lismore and all other suburbs that got flooded earlier in the year had hardly any support and they where angry with the lack of support. media still lying through their teeth.
Raise money for the homeless and hungry
Flood is dangerous i
I hope the rain stops for a while. I also hope that summer in Australia will be very hot and sunny overall, we're very well overdue for one especially after more than 2 years dealing with Covid!
in Australia, it seems to me that there are only extreme weather situations. either extreme heat and forest/bush fires or this what is now.
it previously happened to Noah and could be a sign is going to happen again!
Climate change is a hoax they said.
Looks like we need to print more money or raise taxes or cut tax rorts to cover future cost of floods/droughts…..but you can’t raise taxes or cut back tax rorts and stay in gov, so therefore we need to print money, but you can’t print money and say your good economic managers, so therefore just pretend everything will be ok and global warming will go away and property prices keep going up.
just to be clear, natalie barr is contractually obligated to not mention 'climate change', 'global warming', 'climate inaction', 'scott morrison', 'scomo', or hypothosize or lay blame on why these floods are occurring at a much higher frequency than predicted, or talk about what the gov should have done to prepare for this over last 10 years. channel 7 is also contractually obligated to not blame anyone for the floods or flood prevention, as it may hurt the political advertising they receive during the fed gov's term as well as the months before election.
At the end of the day this is about Atlantis reassembling itself. Part of Australia was included in the Atlantean Empire.
An international forum was held in May called the Global Crisis. We the People. We want to live. It highlights the problems and causes of climate. Scientists talk about the real causes of climate change and how to solve it. Including the project Creative Society is our only chance.🌍
