Rain warning for Sydney as weather system heads down east coast


NSW Fire and Rescue Inspector Phil Eberle said rising river levels at the Murray River were of particular concern as additional resources were sent to the NSW-Victoria border.

“All support agencies; we’re just preparing for the worst and hoping for the best,” he said.

“Talk to the farmers and the residents who live there and their small properties. What the water is doing is unprecedented. There are levels they have never seen, water comes from directions they never thought water would ever come from. “

In the Midwest, emergency services were called to an incident about 30 kilometers north of Mudgee after a car was swept out of the water.
