Wet, wet, wet!



IT HAS been a wet, wet week in the Tweed region and we are guaranteed at least another day of it.

Weather forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology point to rain in the area continuing throughout today but then starting to slow down tomorrow with showers before a fine weekend.

The Bureau also issued flood watches for the Tweed Valley and reported minor to moderate river flooding and local flash-flooding in the Tweed region.

Massive rainfalls were recorded throughout the northern rivers with the Clarrie Hall Dam near Uki recording 234mm and Uki itself recording 247mm for the period 3pm Sunday to 3pm Wednesday.

More locally Murwillumbah recorded 205mm, Tumbulgum recorded 180mm and Brays Creek 132mm.

The Bray Park Water Treatment Plant has recorded 193.8mm to 3pm yesterday with 46mm falling throughout the day.

Limpinwood recorded the most rainfall yesterday, with 199.5mm.

Coolangatta had 49mm in the last 24 hours, while on the Gold Coast the Hinze Dam climbed almost 0.5 percent in one day, rising to 68 per cent.

Surprisingly, Tweed State Emergency Service only received a few calls from people hit by leaking roofs or local flooding.
