Weather Warnings - Potential Flood Alert 1

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
New South Wales

CANCELLATION OF FLOOD WATCH FOR THE PATERSON, WILLIAMS AND KARUAH VALLEYS
Issued at 8:31 am EDT on Tuesday 14 October 2014
##

Note: This Flood Watch is a "heads up" for possible future flooding along all
rivers and creeks within a nominated valley and is NOT a Flood Warning [see
note below].

Heavy rain is now considered unlikely in the Paterson, Williams and Karuah
Valleys as the predicted low pressure system is expected to affect areas
further south.

A Severe Weather Warning is current for these areas. The main flood risk will
be local flash flooding rather than riverine flooding. The situation will be
closely monitored.

This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and creeks
must monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to
higher ground should flooding develop. Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor
Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for
which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service. Across NSW
over 70% of Flood Watches are followed by flooding within the catchment.

FloodSafe advice is available at www.ses.nsw.gov.au

For emergency assistance call the SES on telephone number 132 500.
For life threatening emergencies, call 000 immediately.
