Australia:

Hundreds evacuated as flood waters hit New South Wales

Around 1,600 Australians were forced from their homes by flooding Friday, and 22 rescued from rising waters as the torrents hit or threatened large parts of the most populous state of New South Wales.

Sydney has experienced one of its wettest summers in decades and the rain has continued to fall at the start of autumn, leaving the city’s biggest dam Warragamba set to overflow and vast areas of the state drenched.

Among the worst affected areas is the town of Goulburn, close to the national capital Canberra, which despite being at risk of having no drinking water just six years ago, is now experiencing flooding.

Rains eased overnight but a severe weather warning remains in place for much of the state and the Bureau of Meteorology said heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms could produce more flooding in the next 24 hours.

“We have actually been a little bit fortunate overnight in that rain did ease slightly; it’s been a welcome relief,” State Emergency Service (SES) spokesman Andrew Richards said.

“Having said that, we are still on the alert that more rain will fall over the weekend.”

In areas west of Sydney, residents have been warned not to drive or walk through floodwaters as the region braces for the extra water to flow down from the brimming Warragamba Dam.

Outside the city, farmers have been urged to move livestock, feed and other equipment to higher ground, with the major town of Bathurst expected to see significant flooding on Friday.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the main rainfall would be in the state’s central and western areas, in places such as Mudgee and Dubbo, while there would be an easing in Goulburn, Queanbeyan and Windsor to the south.

“But we are expecting it to move back to the southern parts of the state over the weekend so people should stay on alert,” forecaster Julie Evans said.

So far, no casualties have been reported.

Australia gets its biggest drenching in decades

ASHLEY HALL: But we begin today with the ferocious weather that's delivered south-eastern Australia its biggest drenching in decades.

Seventy-five per cent of New South Wales is now affected by flooding while in Victoria flood stricken towns are preparing for another deluge.

Hundreds of residents have been forced to move to higher ground.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: As fast as the rivers rise they begin to fall but not for long.

Peter Chisnell is the publican at the Tungamah Hotel near the Victoria/ New South Wales border.

He spoke to ABC Local Radio.

PETER CHISNELL: Four or five years ago we were talking about being burnt out and droughted out and here we are now being flooded out. And I think look it's just another learning curve for us up here.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: Flood stricken homes in Victoria's north-east have been given some time to prepare for the next deluge.

MARK CATTELL: Tallygaroopna is a small town up just north of Shepparton and it certainly has been impacted over the last couple of days. And Tungamah is another area that's been isolated by flood waters. And Katandra is another that has had some over floor inundations. So they're certainly some areas we are working with the community now.

But also if we do get more rain or when we get more rain we are certainly going to need to be prepared for that increasing.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: Mark Cattell from Victoria's State Emergency Service.

Dozens of homes and businesses are already under water and those that aren't are scrambling to fill bags with sand to keep as much water as they can out.

MARK CATTELL: Rivers continue to rise at the moment. The overflows, or the overland flows of water are getting into the smaller catchments or into the smaller streams and then into the rivers. So we've seen a number of our rivers going to moderate and some into major at this stage.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: In New South Wales the State Emergency Service is focused on rain soaked regions in the south-east.

DIETER GESKIE: Queanbeyan, the Bega area, the Goulburn area, Cooma and so on and Cowra. There are so many places where we still have a lot of our resources and a lot of our attention focused on.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: The SES deputy commissioner Dieter Gescke.

DIETER GESCKE: The problem here is that we've had a long time of repeated rainfall during the day and then sometimes at night. It's almost sort of a Groundhog Day thing until this system finally breaks up and dissipates.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: Since Sunday a low pressure trough has been moving across the country.

Heavy rain has fallen from Uluru in the Northern Territory down through the northern parts of South Australia, much of western, southern and central NSW and northern Victoria.

Alex Zadnik is a senior meteorologist at the weather forecasting company Weatherzone.

He says the amount of rain which has fallen is breaking records.

ALEX ZADNIK: Well already Albury's pushed up above its March, its previous highest total for March in the space of just two days.

For somewhere like Cooma, Cooma is on track to go above its yearly average and we are only 65 days into the year. So we have seen incredible rainfall and record, we're breaking daily records.

And as this rainfall continues through the next two to three days we'll see numerous March records broken.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: So how many more days to go?

ALEX ZADNIK: The low pressure trough that's causing all this heavy rain has temporarily shifted a little further north through New South Wales bringing a brief reprieve to northern and eastern Victoria and in fact far southern parts of New South Wales.

We will however see this low pressure trough undergo a secondary deepening and drift back a little to the west and south during Saturday.

So heavy rain will return to much of western and southern New South Wales and also far eastern parts of Victoria including the north-east district and East Gippsland.

And the rain is expected to continue until at least Sunday.

KYLIE SIMMONDS: Is there any sunshine on the way?

ALEX ZADNIK: Well the low pressure trough will tend to push north-eastwards on Monday and tend to weaken. So we'll see the rain pushing into the north-east corner of New South Wales which has so far been spared from the heavy rainfall.

And for areas which have seen the heavy rainfall over recent days they will tend to dry out. And through next week it does look to be a drier story so that is of some good news.

But given there's still heavy rain on the forecast for the next few days the situation could still get worse before it gets better.

ASHLEY HALL: Alex Zadnik from Weatherzone ending that report from Kylie Simmonds.
