Supplies delivered to towns cut off by floodwater as Northern NSW braces for more rain

04/04/2021 03:30 PM

NSW SES Volunteers have delivered food, medical and other essential supplies to towns in Western NSW that have been cut off by floodwater as parts of Northern NSW brace for more rain in the next 24 hours.

Low lying areas next to the Tweed, Brunswick, Richmond, Wilsons, Orara and Bellinger Rivers could flood tomorrow, along with some minor roads, low-lying bridges as well as bicycle and pedestrian paths. Backyards and houses that have below-floor levels might flood, and farmers are being warned that they may have to get their livestock and equipment to higher ground.

Holidaymakers coming back from their long weekend away are being warned to take it easy, check and never drive, walk or ride through floodwater.

What you need to do:

Never drive, walk or play in flood waters.

Share this information with family and friends for their awareness.

Farmers are advised to monitor rainfall and river levels and be ready to move their livestock, pumps and other equipment away from rising waters.

Stay up-to-date with Bureau of Meteorology warnings.

For emergency help in floods, storms and tsunami, call NSW SES on 132 500.

In life threatening emergencies, call 000 (Triple 0).
