Today is not the day to be heading to the beach, as following all the storms that have hit Sydney over the past few days, most beaches have been reported as polluted due to rubbish and sewerage.

Yesterday, most our popular beaches were completely deserted due to major pollution across the eastern suburbs and the northern beaches and today won't be much better.

According to Sydney Morning Herald, "only 4 out of 62 beaches in the Sydney and Pittwater regions were reported to have no pollution in the water".

The NSW government has issued warnings about debris and faecal contamination for many parts of Sydney's coast, warning people to not to go swimming at all.


Both North Curl Curl and Tamarama beaches were completely shut from pollution and dangerous surf conditions.

The storms caused 40 millimetres of rainfall, with 20 to 30km/h winds and 22,000 lightning strikes.

It has been a wild few days... and let's not even get started on those trains.
