Freshwater Jacka Park Floods

 

Jacka Park Flood

March 8, 12 noon

After a weeklong period of bad weather that had all the ground in the area completely saturated; the day began with  consistant heavy rain that peaked in the middle of the day with a huge deluge of rain. The Sydney basin was inundated where there was flooding in many low lying areas all along the Northern Beaches, particularly in Freshwater. The following is a video clip that can be downlaoded that shows one result.

Jacka Park again flooded with not only runoff but the sewers backed up and overflowed  drowning the playground area.
