Sydney has been battered over the weekend by dangerous storms, which brought flash flooding, high winds and ferocious seas.

Many coastal and low lying suburbs of the northern beaches had to be evacuated by emergency services.

While some were able to make light of the situation — one guy was fishing off his balcony in Narrabeen — others found themselves in life-threatening situations.

Just the next suburb across in Collaroy, sea walls crumbled away last night, washing property into raging surf.
