Severe Storm Forecast To Hit Adelaide Tomorrow
The Bureau of Meteorology has warned that a vigorous cold front was expected to pass across South Australia and reach Adelaide tomorrow afternoon.
The front will coincide with forecast high tides at Port Adelaide on Thursday evening.
The combination of rain and high tide could increase the risk of minor flooding around the Port Adelaide and Birkenhead areas.
"As a result, the SES has pre-positioned 3,000 sandbags for use by local residents at risk of flooding," SES state duty officer Robert Charlton said.
The sandbags are currently avialable from the Naval Reserve, Fletcher Road, Birkenhead from 6:00pm to 8:30pm with SES volunteers will be on site to help fill bags. Residents can also take empty bags to fill themselves.
In May, fierce winds and rain lashed South Australia leaving thousands of people without electricity and cleaning up minor flood damage (check out the gallery above).
