“It will not take much with the current rainfall we’ve already experienced … for any minor storm to hit [and] raise those flood levels and water levels across roads,” he told Neil Breen.
“It’s going to happen quite quickly, some of this heavy rainfall.
“Be really vigilant.”
This is why we can’t stress it enough and we can’t say it too many times. If it’s flooded, forget it. https://t.co/NTrIZ4oMBE
