Violent Storms Strike Sydney Australia - October 2014

Contact Sydney Technology Solutions for a Business Continuity Plan to Protect Your Data Against Inevitable Disasters!

On Monday, October 13th, 2014, a brief but intense hail and thunderstorm struck businesses and residences in Sydney, AU. On the following day, another storm struck with damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and lighting strikes, resulting in chaos and mid-spring snow from the city to the Blue Mountains.

Andrew Treloar, Forecast Officer Manager at the Bureau of Meteorology, claims the wind speeds were extraordinary – reaching 161 km/h in Wattamolla and over 100 km/h throughout Kurnell, Sydney, and Bellambi. The NSW State Emergency Service (SES) responded to a wide range of calls for flooding, trees down, wires down, and even a house fire due to lightning strikes!

As you can probably imagine, the impact of the storm left many businesses without power while many employees were unable to reach the office due to the significantly dangerous weather conditions. So how does a business prepare for such intense storms?
