The region was hit by severe flash floods overnight as emergency services sought to save the lives of people washed up in floods.
Martin Wells of Coffs Harbor SES spoke at the point where a truck went off the road, saying that too many cars were being washed off the road after driving into the flood.
He said there were several « life threatening » flood rescue operations in the Corindi and Sherwood Creek areas.
« At the moment some incredibly life-threatening situations are developing and we’re trying to reach as many people as possible as quickly as possible, » he said earlier this morning.
« We currently have seven or eight units in action and have requested additional resources for the first light. »
« HAPPEN NOW »
#FlashFlooding is currently taking place across the region. Our flood rescue technicians are currently carrying out rescue operations.
« Never drive, drive or walk through floods »
The truck in Corindi was « basically » floating in the creek and the state rescue team waited for the situation to get safer.
« It is too risky to launch lifeboats at this point. We’re just waiting for the first light and at that point we keep (the driver) calm.
