BOM advises caution

A FINAL flood watch has been issued for the Tweed region.

The notice was issued yesterday morning at 9.34am DST.

The flood watch was billed as a heads-up for possible future flooding and was not an official warning.

No significant rainfall has been recorded across New South Wales since 9pm on Tuesday night.

Flood warnings are current for Richmond, Wilsons and Clarence rivers..

The Richmond Tweed SES service said the flood watch meant people living or working along rivers and streams should monitor the latest flood weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to higher ground should flooding develop.

Flood warnings will be issued if minor flood levels are expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a warning service.

Farmers and other landholders should watch their streams and be prepared to move pumps, equipment and livestock to higher ground.

FloodSafe advice is available at www.ses.nsw.gov.au

For emergency assistance call the SES on 132 500. For life-threatening emergencies call 000 immediately.
