FROM DUST TO FLOODS
LAST week's storm marked
the end of a wet and wild year,
featuring a wrath of significant
weather events which affected
As the region continued its
recovery from the devastating
Pinery fire, the start of 2016 saw
dust-storms regularly plague the
Adelaide Plains and Lower Mid
North communities for months on
Heavy rainfall at the end of
January, and again in March,
stirred up dust that could be seen
from the northern suburbs, with
relief from the unrelenting dust not
coming until May.
May brought heavy rainfall,
welcomed by farmers, but not
coastal residents in Parham and
Middle Beach, who had to be
evacuated due to high tides.
The most memorable weather
event of the year, for many, came
late September when several
days of storms led to a statewide
blackout and catastrophic flooding
across the region, especially for
growers along the Gawler River.
Winds of up to 100 km/h struck
down 22 transmission towers in
five separate locations across the
state, causing a statewide blackout,
at around 3.45pm, on September
28, that lasted for several hours.
Torrential rain caused widespread
flooding, with the North Para River
bursting its banks and flooding
huge portions of the Barossa, and
the Gawler River bursting its banks
Up to 300 primary producers
from within the Adelaide Plains
region were impacted by water
inundation, with the estimated loss
in excess of $50 million.
Salisbury SES unit manager John
Lawrence said, as a result of the
recent storms, there have been
more emergency call-outs in the
local area since October than in the
entirety of the past financial year.
"It's been a very busy past few
months," he said.
The region experienced its fair share of wild weather in 2016, kicking-of with regular dust storms and then devastating fooding in September, as well as ferce winds that brought down power lines, just last
