Strong overnight winds damage roofs across NSW

22/05/2020 08:55 AM

The NSW SES has received more than 110 jobs across the state for leaking and damaged roofs.

Sydney and the Blue Mountains were the hardest-hit areas with 68 jobs and reports of snow in Katoomba and Blackheath. Some roads around Leppington, East Hills and Miranda were also flooded.

There is a severe weather warning out for parts of Sydney and the Illawarra for damaging winds averaging 60-70 km/h with peak gusts reaching 90 km/h. Parts of the shire are in the firing line today including the Royal National Park and the coast.

People who live in the Illawarra and South Coast are being asked to tie down loose items around their house yard and balcony as winds might sweep through Wollongong, Bulli, Port Kembla, Kiama and Ulladulla.

The Bureau of Meteorology is also forecasting damaging surf with waves over 5 meters.

Over the next few days, follow the Bureau for advice about current weather conditions and check all weather warnings at the Bureau of Meteorology
