$50,000 flood damage at Aldgate - 22 June 2023

The heavy rain being experienced across the outer Adelaide metropolitan area has seen CFS crews supporting the community at a number of flooding and tree down incidents.

CFS crews from Aldgate and Stirling have just left the scene of a flooded residential home on Keroma Drive in Aldgate. 

Approximately 2 inches of water has spread throughout the entire property causing an estimated $50,000 worth of damage to flooring, furniture and potentially the edge of the walls. Residents have left the property safely and will source alternate accommodation.

Volunteers at the scene were not able to remove water from the property however, they have cleared a nearby storm drain to hopefully mitigate further water build up.
