I offer you my sympathy. I am three hours north of you. We have been through horrendous storms for the last three days. The rainfall has been in the several hundreds of mm.
It now finally seems to have moved south, save for the occasional persistent shower. My pool is a sickly shade of green, having overflowed and flooded the patio despite the pump being set to remove water to prevent this, much of the garden is devastated, the lawns will take many days to dry out, and there will be days of cleaning up, largely from a neighbour's massive gum tree.
It will all, however, be fixable, unlike the homes and gardens of many poor souls who have been evacuated from flooded homes, some rescued from the roof. The flood levels in this area are going to considerably exceed those experienced in the 2010/11 floods.
I'm on high ground, a few minutes walk downhill to the beach. This beach was unrecognisable this morning after the king tide. The high water has obviously washed with such force onto the parkland adjacent to the beach, it has actually pushed heaps of seagrass, debris and even large rocks about 50 metres up the hill. Many beachside trees have been torn out of the ground. This will cause ongoing erosion.
Just the force of the wind and rain over such a sustained period has been unnerving. I sincerely hope it loses some of its intensity as it travels south. Best of luck to anyone still to experience the awfulness of it.
