Flood in New South Wales, Australia (2022-03-29)

Collection: CEMS-RM : CEMS Rapid Mapping 

Description


Activation time (UTC): 2022-03-29 12:07:00
Event time (UTC): 2022-03-29 01:00:00
Event type: Flood (Riverine flood)

Activation reason:
The Australian continent continues to experience a prolonged rainfall event associated with the current La Nina event. This ongoing weather pattern has now impacted New South Wales where a number of the communities within the area are again experiencing severe flooding. Continued and extensive rainfall has led to more flooding in already saturated catchments which is expected to continue, as warned by the National Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). The activation of Copernicus Emergency Management Service is meant to fill a critical gap in the situational awareness of the event, through the use of a cloud penetrating radar capability to acquire the areas of interest, which are expected to be covered by thick clouds in the coming days.
