How will I know if a storm is on its way?
There are many places that announce Severe Weather Warnings and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings including:
- On the NSW SES website
- On the Bureau of Meteorology website
- Local and statewide media across NSW
Some insurance agencies also send push notifications to members who have signed up for this service.
There are also some weather watch services you can subscribe to that push these notifications to their members.
Know the official storm warnings and what these mean for your emergency plan and how these affect you, your family, neighbours and work mates.
Sometimes there may be little or no warning of storms, especially during the Storm Season, where storms can develop, hit and clear very quickly.
There are some natural signs of storms that you can look out for which include:
- A sudden drop in pressure
- Quick build up of clouds
- The smell of rain in the air
- Sounds of thunder
