    Hi,

    If I was buying in Sydney where can I find a tornado map?

    I should avoid tornado areas as much as possible correct?

    Will a tornado adversely affect property values?

    Must sellers declare if their home has been hit by a tornado?

    There is no Sydney tornado map. Freak storms happen in Summer. I don't think that there's a hail map for SE Qld either.

    No having been through a storm does not affect property values.

    The only legal obligation is to declare if a violent crime was committed on the property.

    The map shop. In the days before gps and Tom Toms, map shops were on every second corner as we were a very polite society and no one would tell you where to go.

    Subdivision is unlikely in good tomato growing areas however you may be able to erect a greenhouse to protect the tomatoes. So there are some opportunities to add value.

    Tomato hits like Egging is not a declarable incident.

    I think someone might be taking the you know what out of newbies who don't think to go to the council website and locate the tornado-maps that are freely available in the upper right hand corner of every council website in Sydney.

    I just rang my insurance company to ensure tornado cover was included. They'll only do cyclone and meatball cover

    One is Global Warming, and the other is what the warmist alarmists rename it after their predictions and models are shown to be nowhere near as accurate and dramatic as they first thought and flogged us to death with?

    @Bayview - I thought you meant GW (Bush) was to blame.

    I think I will just make sure it has one of these.. should solve all problems :)

    My post has a point in that interstate investors seem to be fixated over 'one off' events that have happened once in the last 30 years such as the 2011 Brisbane floods. The issue that pretty much caused the major floods (not letting enough water out of Wivenhoe earlier) has been mitigated by well, letting the overflow out earlier. Some areas can be susceptible to minor flooding now and then, but it's not much of a concern to locals.

    Insurance companies will charge high premiums while they can, and that's a consideration - but from an actual "will it happen again in the near future" I think its pretty unlikely. Might still be some good bargains to be had in these areas, if they haven't been jumped upon already. In 9 years time I doubt anybody will be discounting such properties due to events 20 years earlier.

    You only have to drive around the inner city riverfront areas a little to see, its where a lot of people still want to be if they have the money.

    Yes however I wouldn't want to have to wait around for another 9 or 10 years for those property prices to get to par to normal unaffected properties. A lot can happen in 10 years, your personal circumstances could change and you might look to sell a lot sooner than you originally thought.
    And there may be future restrictions on what you will be allowed to do on flood affected land.
    So it might be a good strategy for some, but it won't be for all.

    Haha ..I thought the same when I read your post. Reminded me of some of the posters last/earlier this year wondering if SEQ was safe to invest in as though they were talking about a 3 world country:p

    It may be a country town full of cowboy developers but it's no third world country. ;)

    I remember back in high school in the Druitt when a willy willy hit our dust bowl playground.

    A classmate ran through it and had to get the dust washed out of his one eye. He also got a weeks detention.

    Warming will lead to more storms and rainfall in some areas. So climate change is a better description of the effects of global warming.

    Is that right? Wow....

    Tim Flannery told us that due to GW and/or CC we would run out of water and our dams would be empty....I think he said it back in 2008 or 9?

    Now we are hearing that GW and/or CC are going to make it rain more, and have more storms. o_O

    Wow. :rolleyes:

    Some places will get more others less, so they're all right.

    In summary we'll get more or less alright:
