Warning to Hawkesbury-Nepean residents
THE NSW State Emergency Service has warned a major flooding is possible ahead of the Bureau of Meteorology’s heavy rainfall forecast this Friday through to the weekend.
Residents along the Hawkesbury-Nepean River tributaries have been issued advice to prepare for flash and riverine flooding as SES rescue teams are being put in place in communities at risk.
Significant rainfall forecast is expected to bring flash flooding in many locations identified by the BOM such as Penrith, Colo, Windsor, North Richmond, Sackville, Lower Portland, Menangle, Camden, Wallacia and surrounding areas 
Widespread showers up to 50 millimetres are expected in NSW with the Greater Sydney region residents to be impacted, the SES advice said.
Flash flooding, strong gale force coastal winds and hazardous surf conditions are also expected to impact the coastal areas in Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Region ad Mid-north Coast.
The water catchment areas in the Greater Sydney region to be affected by minor to possible major flooding include Upper Nepean River, Hawkesbury and Lower Nepean Rivers, Southern Sydney, Parramatta River, and Colo River.
SES assistant commissioner Sean Kearns has urged the community to stay informed of the conditions in their local areas.  
“To stay up to date with current warnings and advice, people should download the Hazards Near Me app and set up a watch zone for their home neighbourhood, or the place they could be visiting,” Mr Kearns said.  
“We’re urging the community to prepare ahead of the weather impact, by tying down loose items, moving their cars from underneath trees, clean your gutters, trim branches away from properties and understand what your flash flooding risk may be.  
“If you do come across a flooded road, please do not drive, walk or ride through it. Stop, turn around and find an alternate route.” 
For SES assistance, call 132 500 or call Triple Zero 000 immediately for life threatening circumstances.. 
The latest BOM river heights, flood and weather warnings are available on www.bom.gov.au/nsw/.
Concerned residents are advised to follow SES social media @NSWSES or visit .www.ses.nsw.gov.au.
