Two northern NSW towns likely to be isolated for days as floods continue

Two NSW towns are likely to be isolated for days as the NSW flood emergency continues.

State Emergency Service workers performed six rescues and answered 112 calls for help between 6am on Saturday and 6am on Sunday.

The towns of Warren and Wee Waa, in the state’s north, are cut off by road and expected to remain that way for days.

Emergency services are using aircraft to delivery water, medicine, food and other supplies to residents.

The town of Gunnedah continues to be impacted by major flooding as of Sunday morning, however water is slowly receding.

The Namoi River peaked at the major flood level of 8.24 metres on Saturday and SES workers were on the ground to assess the damage as it became clear.
