Between the start of the severe weather on Monday December 23 until the end of last week:
- 272 flooding sites visited: crews put up warning signs, cleared gullies of storm debris, and cleared flood water where possible.
- 244 fallen trees and branches cleared: all fallen trees on roads cleared within two hours of call-out
- During Christmas and New Year holidays, there was an average of four emergency response potholes reported. In the past four days (Mon-Thur 6-9 Jan), the average has been 51. These are attributable to the severe weather, particularly water on the roads and changes in temperature.
