Flood update Friday afternoon - NSW SES

by | July 29, 2014

The NSW SES has been responding to over 50 requests for assistance as a result of flooding in the North East of the State. Most requests are for leaking roofs, sandbagging and there have been two flood rescues.

Rain has eased in the Northern Rivers area but flooding along the Richmond and Wilsons rivers later today is still expected. At this stage it is not possible to predict the flood peak because of uncertainty over how much more rain will fall. The Wilsons River at Lismore will exceed minor flood level (4.2 metres AHD) around midnight tonight and reach 5.8 metres AHD early Saturday with minor flooding.At Coraki it will reach 3.9 metres early Sunday with minor flooding and at Bungawalbin Will reach 3.0 metres early Sunday with minor flooding
