Wet Weather Update – 26/10 3:15pm
Mills Park is currently OPEN for 6-aside tonight.
Should lightning be present during play, the 30 – 30 lightning rule will be used in order to determine whether a game should be suspended (to include delaying the commencement of the game) and when it is safe to resume play (to be determined by the Referee).
When lightning is sighted, count the time until thunder is heard. If that time is 30 seconds or less, the thunderstorm is within 10km and is dangerous. As most experts believe that the ‘safe’ distance is more than 10km, all people at risk should be seeking, or already inside safe shelters. This is the time at which matches should be suspended.Lightning Policy
