Wet weather

Hard to believe at 2.30 with the sun shining, that this was the scene in Pier St, Port Melbourne at midday. City of Port Phillip staff were on site pumping water and protecting the entrance to the residences and towers while the Police managed traffic on Beach St.
The localised flooding is caused by incomplete drainage connections that are a legacy from the construction of Beacon Cove. Major Projects Victoria have work well underway to resolve this issue over coming months.
Apart from this, I am not aware of other flooding events in Port Melbourne.
