Emergency services are working to evacuate residents from a New South Wales town this morning after heavy rains wrought havoc across three states. The township of Tarcutta in southern New South Wales is the focus of rescue efforts, with SES workers evacuating residents and the Hume Highway closed by floodwaters north of the town.
Heavy rains and strong winds lashed Wagga Wagga overnight, bringing down trees, causing flash floods up to knee height in some areas, and forcing some homes near the Wagga racecourse to be evacuated. Volunteers in the Riverina-Murray district spent the night sandbagging and responding to hundreds of calls for help.
Heavy rain which hammered Victoria yesterday has eased, but rivers in affected areas are still rising.
Emergency crews in South Australia are monitoring three rivers north of Adelaide, but water levels appear to have peaked overnight.
Twenty-eight council areas have been declared natural disaster zones and the government expects that number to rise.
