Storm warning for Northern Rivers - here we go again.

MANY areas around the Northern Rivers are still without power and yet the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting another round of storms.

Last night Coraki and areas around Dungarubba received the worst damage in the form of lost roofs, damaged cars, fallen trees, flying trampolines and even a lost cubby or two.

At 3.20pm today the bureau issued a warning for damaging wind, large hailstones and heavy rainfall - again.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours.

Locations which may be affected include Lismore and Grafton.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:

* Move your car under cover or away from trees.

* Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.

* Keep clear of fallen power lines.

* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.

* Don't walk, ride your bike or drive through flood water.

* If you are trapped by flash flooding, seek refuge in the highest available place and ring 000 if you need rescue.

* Unplug computers and appliances.

* Avoid using the phone during the storm.

* Stay indoors away from windows, and keep children and pets indoors as well.

* For emergency help in floods and storms, ring the SES (NSW and ACT) on 132 500.
