Explore how showers and thunderstorms affect different people in different ways... reflect on individual action... learn who's responsible for what when there's a flood.
Melbourne is subject to storms, which can cause severe localised flash flooding. Via Melbourne Water’s animated Floods Explorer, students and the community can explore what happens when it rains in urban areas, how houses and parks are affected, and the consequences of blocked gutters and stormwater pollution. Discover the inside story of how councils, the Bureau of Meteorology, the SES and Melbourne Water work together on planning and responding to floods.
