Storms and Floods

The Adelaide Hills region is prone to extremes: dry, fire danger days through one season, and fierce storms and flooding the next. For this reason residents are encouraged to remain prepared not only for bushfire, but also for severe storms and possible flooding.

Storms and flood damage in South Australia often has a higher average annual cost than bushfires, and you can be indirectly affected by storm damage if your usual access roads are cut, or you have no power or telephone.

​The best advice for storm and flood preparation and response comes from the SES.
