A busy weekend for SES & council crews

moss vale storm damage

It's been a busy past few days for SES crews across the Southern Highlands because of the torrential rain and strong winds.

As of last night 230 millimetres had been recorded at High Range, 227 at Mittagong and 125 at Moss Vale.

The Wingecarribee SES has had more than 70 callouts since Thursday with most of those jobs being for fallen trees which have been weakened by the bushfires and drought.

Although the weather system will ease this afternoon, we can expect more rain throughout the week.

SES Media Liaison Officer Joshua Clarke is asking people to stay away from floodwaters.
