Four people have been hospitalised as trees fall and Sydney experiences widespread flooding. Power has been lost across the city.

Trees are falling across other parts of the city, causing major train delays after a branch fell onto tracks around Como in Sydney's south.

"The multi-day rainfall from this event looks like much more than what we had during the June 2016 east coast low which was our last significant east coast low," Bureau acting NSW state manager Jane Golding said on Saturday.The system that dumped around 300 millimetres of rain on parts of the Byron Bay area is now concentrated on the area between Newcastle and Batemans Bay, with heavy falls in the Blue Mountains and on the Illawarra escarpment.

In other parts of the state, WaterNSW modelling shows the Nepean dam could overflow if the intense rainfalls continue, and all metropolitan dam storages will see their water levels rise.Loading Earlier on Sunday, four men were rescued by good Samaritans after their boat capsized on Brisbane Waters on the Central Coast, and one person was rescued after being swept away in floodwaters near Dungog.

The Blue Mountains has recorded some of the heaviest rainfall, with Wentworth Falls receiving 180mm, but areas around Newnes on the western side of the range have received much less rain, and the Gospers Mountain fire is still listed at advice level.
