Despite many people still delighting in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure, like bitumen and concrete, large amounts of rain can build up, causing flash flooding, which can cause damage to homes and the environment.
Sadly the long hot summers in Sarina leave it, like much of Australia, prone to wide-spread bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Sarina’s rainfall comes in the summer, this often leads to long grasses which burn easily.
Sarina experiences a high annual rainfall due to its subtropical position, with temperatures rarely venturing above 35 degrees.

Over a century ago, the first Southern Cross water tank was manufactured by the Griffiths family, after they had experienced success with their Southern Cross windmills in 1903.

In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our rivals suffered a structural failure, leading the tank to rupture, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing wreckage, and even washing away a family vehicle.
