DRENCHED ... and more on the way



AUTHORITIES last night warned there was more to come as the heaviest rainfall of the summer lashed the Tweed and Northern Rivers.

Locally, creeks, dams and waterways overflowed and rural roads were closed as hundreds of centimetres of rain tumbled down. Further south around Byron Bay and Lismore residents made preparations to evacuate and the Pacific Highway north of Ballina was cut.

While there were no immediate fears of a repeat of last June's big wet council, police and emergency service workers were on alert with heavy falls expected today.
