NSW SES Do not enter floodwater – Billinudgel, The Pocket, Tumbulgum, Murwillumbah, Lismore CBD Basin – The EchoPosted by On

The NSW SES advises people in Billinudgel, The Pocket, Tumbulgum, Murwillumbah and Lismore CBD Basin, to NOT ENTER FLOODWATER due to current dangerous flash flooding.

You should monitor the situation as it is constantly changing. Avoid floodwater for your safety.

What are we expecting?

We will monitor the situation and update our warnings if the situation changes.

What you need to do:

If you have a Home and/or Business Emergency Plan, review it now. Otherwise, have a
conversation and plan for what you will do and take with you if you need to evacuate.
Consider the consequences of road and bridge closures and water over roads and make
alternate arrangements for work, children, and travel.

Plan your route carefully to avoid flooded roads and allow extra travel time.
Obey all signs about road closures and instructions from emergency services.

Avoid storm drains and pipes, ditches, ravines and rivers.

Never drive, walk, ride through, play or swim in floodwater-it is dangerous, toxic, and may
void your car insurance. If it’s flooded, forget it. Fines apply.

Share this information with family, friends, and neighbours and help others prepare
where possible.
