Flood warning for Northern Rivers
THE State Emergency Service has issued a severe weather warning and flash flood warning for the Northern Rivers.
Following ongoing rainfall over the region, the SES has warned residents to exercise extreme caution until any flood waters have dropped.
The SES advise not to enter any flood waters or covered low lever road crossing as any waters may have fast flowing currents.
They advise farmers should take action to protect pumps, other equipment and livestock.
Motorists should avoid driving trhough flood waters, which may have washed away road surfaces and could be deeper or faster-flowing than they look.
The SES is monitoring the situation and will continue to update residents.
