The NSW SES advises people in Richmond Terrace to PREPARE TO EVACUATE now, Monday 24 October, owing to predicted dangerous minor flooding.

Residents should monitor the situation and prepare to evacuate so that you can safely evacuate when instructed to do so by NSW SES. Wherever possible, you should prepare to stay with family or friends, or make other accommodation arrangements.

If you remain in the area, you may become trapped without power, water, and other essential services. It may be too dangerous for NSW SES to rescue you.
