Floods leave 3500 evacuated across NSW

AROUND 3500 people across NSW face an indefinite wait before they can return to their homes as continuous heavy rain swells rivers across the state.

Almost 2000 people in Sydney's flood-threatened north-western fringes were told to evacuate today as relentless rain put pressure on the already swamped Hawkesbury-Nepean River.

The rushing waters forced the closure of North Richmond Bridge - as the river reached 7.4 metres today afternoon and the Windsor Bridge was closed late this afternoon.

Mandy Brown, coordinator at the Baptist Church evacuation centre in Windsor, said they were prepared for a long stay.

"We will be open 24 hours and for as long as needed. We have enough beds, food and people to help out," she said.

NSW State Emergency Services (SES) commissioner Murray Kear told reporters that the Hawkesbury-Nepean River, which swelled after the Warragamba Dam opened its floodgates, had not had that amount of water in decades.

"We would have to go back 20 or 30 years to see some similar peaks," Mr Kear said at the SES south-western headquarters today.

Across the state, 900 people remain under evacuation orders in Cooma, another 600 are unable to return to their homes in Goulburn, and 60 people have been left stranded in Cowra.

"We are monitoring the likelihood of local heavy rain and are being cautious about allowing people to go back yet," SES spokesman Dave Owens said.

Evacuation warnings are in place for 400 people in Queanbeyan near Canberra as emergency services watch the Murrumbidgee River, with major flooding occurring at Gundagai and moderate flooding forecast for Wagga Wagga.

Gordon McKay, manager of the NSW flood watch centre at the Bureau of Meteorology, said overnight the biggest concern was the region stretching from Wagga Wagga to Canberra where up to 100mm is expected to fall over the next 48 hours.

Across the Snowy Mountains more than 100mm of rain is likely to fall into tomorrow.

In the Hawkesbury-Nepean river catchment, 20mm to 30mm was expected in the next 24 hours.

The BoM is now expecting the rainband which has caused this week's downpours will begin to move slowly to the northeast and weaken later into Monday.

Mr Kear said it has been an unprecedented event.

"There has been an unprecedented amount of rain over a long duration. It's been many, many years since the sheer amount of rainfall.

"This rain event covers 75 per cent of the state."

There have been 43 flood rescues since Monday, with 179 calls for help overnight.

Meanwhile 2000 people remain isolated by flood waters across the state's north-west.

"Even through who have had a really strong focus here we have also maintained a very strong presence in the already affected regions making sure we drop supplies and resupplies," Mr Owens said.

Rain unrelenting as floodwaters spread

There are major flooding concerns across huge parts of New South Wales and Victoria as residents brace for more heavy rain tonight.

In Wagga Wagga, 100 soldiers are helping sandbag properties, with 200 residents of low lying areas of the city warned of an expected nine metre peak that could arrive on Sunday night.

The SES also says it is keeping a close watch on the Jugiong and Gundagai communities after the heavy rain returned today, causing creeks and dams to rise again.

A major flood peak of nine metres is forecast at Gundagai tonight.

West of Sydney, almost 1,900 people have been ordered to evacuate from the Hawkesbury Nepean Valley, and 1,500 people are still not allowed to return to their homes in Cooma and Cowra.

The evacuation order in Goulburn has been lifted, but Phil Campbell from the State Emergency Service says heavy rain is now moving towards the Snowy Mountains and Western Slopes.

"The conditions [in Goulburn] have been quite mild over the last 24 hours; there's very little rain," he said.

"However we still have some concerns for Cooma, which is a flash flood environment. There is the possibility of some heavy rain down there tonight and as a consequence we have asked those people to remain evacuated.

"We've had very heavy rain redevelop in the Riverina area with some falls since 9:00am (AEDT) of over 50mm.

"There are concerns for the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan river systems in particular.

"We have had to revise height predictions for the Lachlan River. This does indicate some major flooding is likely affect Forbes in coming days."

Evacuation warnings are in place for the Goodradigbeee and Goobarragandra Rivers and low lying areas along the Tumut River at Tumut.

Falls of more than 30 millimetres around Hay and Griffith in the Western Riverina are also causing problems.

Authorities spent the afternoon doorknocking properties downstream of the Orange City water supply, in the state's central west, after an overflow alert was triggered.

The SES says there is more than 230 millimetres of water going over the spillway at Suma Park Dam.

Central West SES region controller Craig Ronan says further rainfall this afternoon could cause the dam level to rise.

He says residents need to be alert, but an evacuation order would only be issued if the overflow rose to 800 millimetres.

"We want to have a prepared community, we want to make sure people understand there is a lot more rain predicted, we want to err on the side of caution and make sure that we have people prepared if it happened," he said.

Meanwhile, towns in Victoria's north-east are stocking up with supplies with up to 100 millimetres of rain expected in some parts tonight.

Katamatite, north of Shepparton, is now isolated while Tungamah can only be accessed via four wheel drive in the south.

Moira Shire Mayor Alex Monk says there are other areas of concern.

"We are going to have issues again in Yarrawonga. I'm not sure about Bundalong now because the highway's cut three ways," she said.

Ms Monk says there is water everywhere.

"I went up in the ABC helicopter. It didn't matter which way we looked there was water everywhere," she said.

"Whether it was to the north, the east where the water is coming from, to the south, it's water coming in off the Broken Creek, there's water further south than that and to the west is where all the water is flowing to and it's just water almost everywhere."

John Newlands from the SES says the army is on standby.

"We also have some support in South Australia, some sand bag making machines to be utilised in the area," he said.

The SES says local catchments are already soaked and this rainfall is likely to become run off very quickly.

Flooding isolates residents in Victoria

FLOODING has caused the town of Katamatite, in Victoria's north-east, to become isolated.

Shepparton incident control centre spokesman Graeme Macartney said all roads in and out of the town are closed and residents were being urged not to drive on flooded roads.

"It's very important to get that message across that the road signs are there for a reason," Mr Macartney said.

"Those that ignore them are putting at risk emergency service personnel that have other things they should be doing."

Residents in neighbouring town Numurkah are also under threat of isolation as flood waters are rising and more heavy rain is forecast.

Flood waters in the town hardest hit by floods, Tallygaroopna, were beginning to recede. However residents there and in neighbouring Tungamah were not out of the danger zone as the forecast heavy rain has not hit yet.
