Storms cause flooding around Sydney

Breaking Earth News

Thunderstorms have lashed parts of the NSW coast, dumping heavy rain and causing flash flooding.

Storms developed in a line across the south coast and the Sydney metropolitan area early Thursday, coming on the heels of a front which swept through the state's east on Wednesday.

The flash flooding caused traffic chaos in Sydney and on roads south of the city, and localised flooding left residents in many areas needing sandbagging and help with leaking roofs.

The State Emergency Service (SES) said it had logged 103 calls for assistance since Wednesday afternoon.
