La Niña is here: Is your home prepared?
Victoria may be in for a summer of rain, hail and strong winds. Here’s how to prepare your home for the possible effects of La Niña.
The Victorian summer of 2021/22 is set to bring more rain, possible floods and cooler than usual daytime temperatures thanks to La Niña, a naturally occurring shift in ocean temperatures and weather patterns along the equator in the Pacific Ocean.
This weather pattern has not been seen in ten years according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and is set to last until at least January 2022.
November 2021 already previewed the possible effects of La Niña when hundreds of homes in Victoria were left without power after a night of heavy rain and wind.
So, with more severe weather potentially on the horizon, it’s important to ensure that your home is La Niña ready – and that means undertaking key maintenance jobs in and around the home.
