news, news,

Port Macquarie’s SES unit has been busy in recent days as calls for help increased due to the recent wet weather. Crews were called to a house in Port Macquarie where a large tree had fallen on the roof on Thursday (February 3). “Fortunately there was a low retaining wall adjacent to the house which allowed easy access and allowed the job to be done quickly and safely,” reads a post on the Port Macquarie SES Facebook page. SES crews have also been called out to a number of leaking roofs as the wet weather continues. Wet conditions will continue well into the weekend and into early next week, according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM). BOM has also issued a dangerous surf warning for NSW, with surf and wave conditions expected to be dangerous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, boating and swimming. A severe weather warning has also been issued for Lord Howe Island for unusually high tides, with conditions expected to ease over the weekend. A sea wind warning has also been issued for parts of the state. Port Macquarie lifeguards have issued a warning on their Facebook page, reminding locals of the dangerous conditions to be expected over the next few days. “Swell will be rough up to 12ft and surf zones with waves up to 8ft can be expected,” the post reads. “Town and Flynns beaches are currently open for waist-deep swimming, with lifeguards constantly monitoring conditions. Beach closures are likely and beach status will be updated accordingly on the ‘Beach Safe’ app and website.” Our journalists work hard to provide local, breaking news to the community.
