Flood Warning

button-emergency

Be aware there is a severe weather warning currently in place with predictions for 200mm of rain in the next 24-48 hours.

The Tweed River  at Uki is currently  just over 2m (Uki gauge *, 18:00, 12 June 2017). There is plenty of capacity, but as the catchment is so saturated from the recent 150+mm over the last 24/36 hours there may be some localised flooding.

This information has been gathered from discussions with Murwillumbah SES and BOM information.
