Flood in New South Wales, Australia (2021-11-10)

Collection: CEMS-RM : CEMS Rapid Mapping 

Description


Activation time (UTC): 2021-11-10 12:34:00
Event time (UTC): 2021-11-10 15:00:00
Event type: Flood (Riverine flood)

Activation reason:
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology advise that a severe weather pattern is crossing Australia and has the potential to produce flooding events across wide areas in the coming days. It is expected that New South Wales will be severely impacted, as many areas in the state have received recent rainfall that has saturated the upper levels of soil and significantly increased regional dam levels. The European Delegation to Australia in relation with the Australian Emergency Service from the Home Affairs Department, triggered the Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping Service to monitor the flood evolution over the potentially affected areas.
