Nature has come reckoning for Sydney with its multiple parts making it to headlines with record breaking heat, extensive droughts and huge bushfires. Recently, deluges in Sydney have joined the list over the weekend. In fact, the city saw so much rains, there are concerns about dams and reservoirs coming of capacity and possibly outflow. Also, Tropical Cyclone Uesi nears the coast in the next several days, which raises the concerns manifold.

According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Sydney recorded a total of 15.4 inches of rain between February 6 and 9 which is the wettest four-day period since February 2 to 5, 1990.

These rains over the weekend amounted to three times the typical monthly precipitation total in Sydney during February. Also, multiple other parts of southeastern Australia picked up more than 13 inches of rain in just 24 hours from February 8 to 9.

As a matter of fact, this four-day rain total of Sydney is more than the previous six-month period for the city. It’s also more than the city of Melbourne, saw all of last year.

Going by the reports, more than 100,000 Sydney residents lost power during the storms. The city’s transportation network came to a halt.
