Flood warnings are still in place for the area and further updates and warnings are likely to be issued over the next few days.
Everyone living or visiting the area are urged to be vigilant as many roads are impacted by floodwater. If anyone does come across floodwater, do not attempt to drive, walk or ride through it. Simply stop, and find another way around.
