233 mm at Alstonville
214 mm at Goonengerry
193 mm at Doon Doon
145 mm at Mullumbimby Creek
127 mm at Lismore

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:

* Keep clear of fallen power lines.
* Don’t walk, ride or drive through flood water.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* Beware of fallen trees or debris on the road.
* Stay vigilant and monitor conditions. Note that the landscape may have changed following bushfires.

No further warnings will be issued for this event.

  1. I feel I must compliment the ‘Echo’ on their no-nonsense flood coverage recently, with all warnings and estimates passed on accurately.
    IMHO – far better than ABC North Coast – radio or Facebook .
    Thanks to you all, please keep up this standard !
