Yellow Warning…again

February 24th, 2007 at 04:58pm

I’ve ignored a couple ho-hum blue alerts over the last couple of days, but it looks like we finally have an alert which has been issued for a reason other than merely testing the fax machine by issuing an alert.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe storm warning for large hailstones, damaging winds, very heavy rainfall and flash flooding in the Illawarra, South Coast, Southern Tablelands, ACT and parts of the Hunter, Central Tablelands and Metropolitan Forecast Districts. Major locations within the warning area include Nowra, Batemans Bay, Canberra, Goulburn, Wollongong and Yass.

The usual precautions apply:
Move your car under cover or away from trees.
Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.
Keep clear of fallen power lines.
Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
Don’t walk, ride your bike or drive through flood water.
Unplug computers and appliances.
Avoid using the phone during the storm.
Stay indoors away from windows, and keep children and pets indoors as well.

The ACT Emergency Services Authority has issued a “Likely Impact” Yellow Warning, which will be valid until 8pm, after which they will revert to their weekend-long “Possible Impact” Blue Alert.

The next update from the Bureau is due at 5:55pm.

For emergency help in floods and storms, ring the SES on 132 500.

Update 5:06PM: Looks like the storm heard about the alert and decided to take shelter, because the rain is rapidly disappearing from the radar. End Update

    Some legal, over-the-counter bird seed.
