Moving towards storm and flood recovery

The Central Coast is starting to recover from the impacts of the recent severe weather event which saw substantial rainfall and localised flash flooding, however parts of our region are still impacted.

15 March 2022


SAFETY and supporting the affected community continues to remain a priority for Council.


A Recovery Committee has been established and Council is working with Resilience NSW as we move forward.


The Rural Fire Service (RFS) are making arrangements to deliver fuel for generators, which has been donated by a volunteer. The SES and RFS are continuing to contact residents where possible and monitor flood levels and deliver food hampers and fuel. WelFAC have provided hampers and water with continued supply available where required. The Ambulance Service, RFS and NSW Health are continuing to assist with welfare checks and provision of support.


Two Pop-up Recovery Hubs will open at Spencer and The Entrance from Monday 14 March to support affected communities.  Council is working with Resilience NSW to ensure residents have access to information and support services to aid recovery following the recent severe weather event.
