The NSW SES has already had more than 600 calls for help, and five people have been rescued from floodwaters. 9News

The SES has moved additional resources up to northern NSW, which has been hit particularly hard, with the main street of Byron Bay turned into a river after flood waters inundated shops and vehicles along the strip.

"In some places there is not a lot of vegetation around to stabilise the slopes," the Bureau of Meteorology's acting NSW State Manager, Jane Golding, said. Byron Bay was hit with 107mm of rain in the past 24 hours, while Cape Byron's received 254mm during the 21 hours to 6am on Friday – the heaviest daily total since records started in 2002 and higher than any monthly total since March 2017.

"A coastal trough near the northern NSW coast is bringing increased rainfall to the area," explained the BoM.

There's a free tool to assess fire, flood risk on your property — but you'll be lucky to find itThis free online tool can tell Tasmanian homeowners if their property is at risk of bushfire, erosion or landslides — but there are questions as to why the government isn't letting people know they can access it. I imagine practicality anyone in Tasmania would be very interested in this.
