Gusts of 55km/h are expected today from Grafton, in the states north, to Eden near the Victorian border, with sea swells of up to 3m forecast. A Bureau of Meteorology storm warning remained in place last night for the states northern rivers, Snowy Mountains, North Coast, Hunter and Riverina regions, and for the ACT. A regional warning for severe thunderstorms with large hailstones, very heavy rainfall and flash flooding covering the ACT and a large part of NSW is still in effect, the bureau said in a update before 8pm. The State Emergency Service had responded to 27 calls, mainly minor damage, as storms swept across the state yesterday. Up to 100mm of rain has been forecast to hit Sydney and the Hunter region today and this could cause some local flash flooding, an SES spokesmen said. Coal seam warning In otherwords,we have no idea of the damage CSGwill cause BRISBANE: An announcement that coal seam gas fracking contaminated the drinking water of a US community should be a wake-up call for the nation, the Australian Greens say. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has for the first time implicated fracking a method of improving the productivity of oil and gas wells in causing groundwater pollution. Health officials advised a Wyoming community not to drink their water after the EPA found hydrocarbons from fracking in their wells. Australian Greens senator for Queensland Larissa Waters said, although Australias hydrology was different from Americas, the same thing could happen here. She cited a 2009 case when the Queensland Gas Company contaminated the Springbok aquifer in the Western Darling Downs. The Queensland Water Commission admitted last week its knowledge in the space was evolving, Senator Waters said in a statement. In other words, we have no idea of the damage CSG will cause to our groundwater systems. This report is an urgent wake-up call for all parties to . . . back the Greens call for a moratorium on CSG until the science is in. Environment Minister Vicky Darling said in a statement yesterday that in Queensland fracking fluids are commonly 99 per cent sand and water. She added: The Queensland Govern ment has introduced legislation preventing the addition of chemicals benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene and xylene (known as BTEX) in fracking operations The PolAir chopper joins in the search near Nowendoc for Malcolm Naden Picture: PETER LORIMER Rugged terrain slows manhunt SYDNEY: The hunt for one of NSWs most wanted men, Malcolm Naden, continues to be hampered by poor weather conditions and dense bushland, police say. Extra police have joined the search for Naden, who allegedly shot a 33-year-old police officer on Wednesday as an attempt was made to corner the fugitive at a remote campsite near Nowendoc, in northern NSW. Yesterday, operation com mander Assistant Commissioner Carlene York said police continued to face challenges. The area includes rugged terrain, she said, and the dense bushland reduced visibility both on the ground and from the air. Since the manhunt began, heavily armed officers, tracker dogs and two heatseeking PolAir choppers have been brought into the search for Naden.
