Severe storm to bring more rain

THE Northern Rivers is not at out the woods yet in terms of floods with the Bureau of Metrology issuing a severe weather warning for the region this morning.

A minor flood warning has also been re-issued for Murwillumbah and Chinderah.

A broad low-pressure system over South East Queensland and Northern NSW combined with another slow-moving trough may lead to heavy falls in the area today.

The BOM have warned this may cause flash flooding.

Joan Tulett from the Richmond Tweed SES said river levels had started to stabilise and drop overnight.

But she warned that the situation could change.

"We are wanting visitors and residents to be aware that the situation could change very quickly," she said.

"Areas that may look ok can change very quickly."

SES volunteers will be door knocking around the towns that were evacuated earlier this week, including Fingal Head, South Murwillumbah, Condong and Chinderah.

They will be collecting data and talking to residents about their experiences to assist the SES in preparing for the next flood, Mrs Tulett said.

There is minor flooding in Coraki where the Richmond River peaked at 4.68 metres this morning.

The Wilsons River at Lismore is currently falling after peaking at 7.58 metres yesterday.
