State Emergency Service Clarence controller Peter Stevens said heavy rainfall in the Valley at the weekend brought low-level flooding and headaches for drivers.

Mr Stevens said rain caused localised flooding on the coast. Roads in the Wooli, Tucabia, Coutts Crossing, Glenreagh and Nymboida areas were cut briefly.

"The SES had 40 volunteers working all weekend," Mr Stevens said.

The SES helped two families at South Grafton divert water away from their houses by forming a sandbag barrier. Tarpaulins were used to plug leaks in roofs on four homes, at Maclean, Grafton and Copmanhurst.

The SES helped a woman who drove a car into floodwaters on a low-level bridge.
