    Flood Warning NSW

    Hope all our members are safe:wubclub: Heavy rainfall across NSW has already claimed the life of a three-year-old boy, who drowned early on Saturday afternoon (AEDT) when he was swept into a stormwater drain at Bingara. By early Sunday morning, the Namoi River is expected to reach 6.7 metres, which the State Emergency Service (SES) says will leave 1800 residents at Wee Waa stranded until Thursday. "This is a very slow flood. Because it's so flat, it stays around for quite a long time," SES spokesman Phil Campbell said. No one had been evacuated from the area, but Mr Campbell said the SES aircraft crews would change their focus from rescue operations to supplying people with food and essentials. At Moree, about 90km northeast of Wee Waa, 400 residents have been warned they may be asked to evacuate as swollen rivers gradually inundate the floodplains. About 50 people are already isolated on properties around Moree. The weather bureau is predicting that Gwydir River tributaries, at Mehi River and Yarraman Bridge, will peak at 10 metres on Sunday night, the highest level since January 2001. "They're now assessing what effect that will have and whether that will require a full evacuation," Mr Campbell said. Heavy rain hit the state for 24 hours into the early afternoon on Saturday, also stranding 400 people southwest of Coffs Harbour, on the north coast. Since Thursday, the SES has rescued 10 people trapped in cars as they attempted to drive through floodwaters, with eight of the call-outs in the state's north. A helicopter was used to rescue a husband and wife who had become bogged in a tractor near Moree and were forced to spend the night outside. Moderate flooding is also expected at Tamworth on the Peel River, and flood warnings are also in place for the Macintyre, Macleay and Bellinger rivers. A severe weather warning was cancelled early on Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, on the NSW South Coast, an evacuation warning has been downgraded for residents of 18 properties below Jerrara dam, inland of Kiama, where there were concerns the dam might overflow if there was any more rain. A ceasing of rain has seen the alert level moved from amber to a less severe white level. The SES received around 720 calls for help since heavy rains began falling across the state on Friday, with 400 volunteers on hand to help with leaky roofs and fallen branches.
  3. Queensland's Floods Inquiry will continue its final days of public hearings in Brisbane today as it races to complete its report by the February deadline. The Commission has just 14 days of hearings to go before it adjourns to prepare its final report. Complaints about insurance companies and confusion over terms used to describe a property's flood risk have dominated the second round of sittings. The Inquiry has heard evidence from many disaster victims who did not understand their property's flood risk when they purchased it. Other witnesses have complained about delays they experienced waiting for their insurance claims to be processed. More evidence on town planning is expected today as the Commission considers whether changes to building guidelines are needed.

  21. Gillard just said it as well as introducing a flood tax - assume this means folk needed for the rebuilding effort. Good news for some??? Added info from Tanner "Can I clarify further that your application has to be a 'DECISION READY' application to qualify for the 5-day processing time. Gillard has also let slipped a few occupations during her questioning time: Bricklayers, tilers and plumbers. So congratulations to all above! (OP - feel free to amend your original post as you did, 'cos people are far less likely to read my post than yours, and will miss out important information)"
