3 March 2022: High tides and rough seas have seen most local beaches disappear by lunchtime today, 3 March 2022, with rough seas continuing to batter the coast from the East Coast Low. An ominous rain bomb heading our way, however, has shifted north, leading to relatively little rain in the area compared to the large amounts forecast.
While residents in flood-prone areas are encouraged to remain prepared and keep an eye on communications, it now looks like evacuations are unlikely.
A number of roads are closed around Manly Vale near the Andrew Boy Charlton Pool and. large tree is down near forty baskets pool in Balgowlah Heights and further tree damage is expected over coming days.
Conditions may become more severe again over the weekend so keep an eye on the Bureau of Meteorology warnings page.
