Residents in eastern New South Wales are being warned to stay indoors as severe weather hits parts of the state.

The NSW SES advises people in Sydney, Wollongong, Nowra, Batemans Bay and Goulburn to avoid leaving the house amid damaging winds and heavy to intense rainfall.

NSW Police reiterated the warning, telling residents to “monitor the situation as it is constantly changing”.

NSW Premier Chris Minns says the state is experiencing a “significant weather event”.

“It is most important that you don’t take unnecessary risks at the moment, particularly travelling through flood waters,” he said.

The premier described the weather as a “volatile event” and urged affected residents to stay up to date with the latest information.

“If we can communicate that quickly to the people of NSW, we can minimise danger to people in particular,” he said.

“It requires everybody being alert, particularly in the next 24 to 48 hours.”
