Lismore to flood tonight

FLOODING is expected in Lismore late tonight after the  Wilsons River valley received up to 85mm of rain in the past 24 hours.

Further rainfall is forecast for the next 48 hours, which could result in increased flooding in the Richmond and Wilsons River Valleys.

The situation is being closely monitored and revised predictions will be issued if necessary.

A flood watch is current for moderate to major flooding along the Richmond and Wilsons River for the next  two days.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicted to exceed the minor flood level of 4.2 metres around midnight  tonight.

People in the catchment of the Wilsons River should take care around low-lying causeways and creek crossings.

The lower car parks adjacent to the river in the Lismore CBD will remain closed until further notice.

The SES advises that people camping, caravanning and engaging in activities near rivers and streams should listen to the radio for updates and advices, camp well away from watercourses and streams and be particularly aware that roads leading away from un-established camp sites could be affected before camping areas.

If you need emergency assistance as a result of flooding contact your local State Emergency Service Unit by calling 132 500.

The SES is monitoring the situation. Keep listening to this radio station for updates.
For life threatening emergencies call 000 immediately
