for people in the Hunter forecast district
Issued at 10:17 pm EST on Friday 22 May 2015.
WINDS HAVE EASED BELOW GALE FORCE FOR THE HUNTER COAST.
A complex low pressure system over the Tasman Sea is moving east further away from the NSW coast. This has allowed winds to ease below gale force on the Hunter coast.
The Severe Weather Warning for the Hunter forecast district has been cancelled, but the situation will continue to be monitored and further warnings will be issued if necessary.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
- Keep clear of fallen power lines.
- Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water.
- Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
- Beware of fallen trees or debris on the road.
For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
No further warnings will be issued for this event.
This warning is also available through TV and Radio broadcasts; the Bureau's website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 218.
