Lane Cove’s Blustery Weekend 4 and 5 June 2016

The Bureau Of Meteorology predicted a blustery weekend with heavy rainfall and winds; they were spot on. Lane Cove has trees down everywhere and Lane Cove North, Linley Point and Riverview have all lost power. Here is a pictorial wrap-up of the weekend. Thank you to our Roving Reporters who have done a great job. Everyone appreciates your pictures and videos.

Lane Cove Country Club is awash with rain. Kids were loving it. They had their boogie boards out and were surfing the greens.

A concerned resident had written to the Lane Cove Council about this exact tree advising them that it was dead and that it should be removed, because if it fell it would hit power lines. That is exactly what happened.

Possums Corner Kindy in Lane Cove North – check tomorrow before sending your child to see if it is open. There may be some roof damage – it is hard to tell.

If you are thinking of driving to the Artarmon Station, you will be diverted.


If power is out and it is not listed on the Ausgrid Power Outage map you can report it here – if you have your electricity bill handy, it will help you provide the correct information (you need our NIM).
