Meanwhile, river heights on the Clarence are beginning to take a sharp rise as the river is on flood watch for minor to moderate flooding.
At Lilydale, the river height has risen almost 4m in 24 hours to 5.06m at 7am this morning.
The Orara river broke its minor flood level of 5m at Glenreagh at 7pm last night, and continues to rise, almost at the moderate level at 8.36m at 7am this morning and still rising.
The Bluff Bridge on the Orara Way is monitored by an automatic gauge and a live camera feed shows the bridge is now underwater from the flooding.
