Canberra news, all storms all the time, with the odd moment taken to remind you of water restrictions.
But our Minister Not Responsible, Katy Gallagher, has taken a moment to announce a new fact sheet to help you clean up safely from flooding:
“Flooding is caused by rivers which have overflowed or by localised rainfall at a rate that exceeds the local drains capacity, often referred to as flash flooding”
Gosh golly, you don’t say? I’d previously had no idea what a flood was and without Katy’s media release would really have been in the dark!
The Fact Sheet itself is an absolute doozy containing such useful advice as:
Wash hands with soap and water after touching flood water and mud or going to the toilet and before eating or making food.
Yes, you’re cleaning up after a flood but be sure to wash your hands after going to the toilet!
There’s plenty more gold there, feel free to share the bits that amuse you most.
