What are Mr Zelinsky’s key interests?SES volunteers assisting with a large fallen tree branch out the front of a houseClean-up continues after Saturday’sferocious stormIt was brief but it had some serious power. A storm that hit parts of Wollongong left tree branches strewn across roads and roofs peeled back from buildings. The fast-moving storm cell also left 7,000 homes without power.

La Mamitas cafe owners say their shop is ‘unsalvagable’ after the stormEmpty tables and facilities at a local caravan parkCancellations cause more financial pain for South Coast tourism operatorsAt this time of year our South Coast caravan parks are usually full of people mingling, making new friends and having fun.

Motion-detection cameras send images to a website, where citizen scientists can help look for signs of the endangered bird returning after bushfires wiped out much of their habitat in 2019.

University of Wollongong aged care expert Kathy Eagar says the vaccine booster program for aged care facilities has not been able to match the speed of the spread of the Omicron variant.

How many aged care facilities still need booster shots?Entrance to Swan Lake open with lots of water flowing from seaSwan Lake illegally openedWhile most Tchaikovsky fans would love to hear about a Swan Lake opening, it’s a different story at Cudmirrah. Shoalhaven Council and New South Wales Fisheries officers are investigating after Swan Lake was illegally opened, creating a large, 30-metre wide channel to the ocean. It’s now deemed a public safety risk.

What’s your reaction? Let us know on our Facebook pageRemember the World Grass Skiing Championships in Jamberoo?We’re going back nearly 40 years for this dive into our archives, but did you know Jamberoo hosted the World Grass Skiing Championships in 1983? The event hasn’t been held in Australia since and it saw hundreds of international competitors race down green hills. There was even an opening ceremony parade down Crown Street in Wollongong!

Tomerong investigation: Shoalhaven Council’s handling of complaints about the Tomerong Quarry is being investigated by the NSW Ombudsman. The council fined quarry operators $114,000 in 2017 for illegally importing carcinogenic fly ash and breaching its licence conditions, but the maximum penalties available were in the millions.

Private hospital COVID help: Private hospitals in the Illawarra are prepared for an influx of patients with COVID-19 from the public system as hospitalisations continue to rise. The private hospital partnerships will allow the most severe patients to continue to receive care at Wollongong Hospital.

Berry Show cancelled: This year’s Berry Show has been called off amid climbing COVID-19 case numbers. Despite the decision, organisers are confident they will be adequately prepared for a show next year.
