“Residents and visitors to these areas should take action now to prepare for possible flood impacts,” a spokesperson said.

“NSW SES is advising residents in low-lying areas of the following locations that they may need to evacuate due to rising floodwater.”

These areas include Whittingham, Scotts Flat, Whittingham Hall via New Freugh Hill via New England Highway and Range Road, Glenridding, Dunolly and Combo.

“Low-lying properties may experience impacts due to flash flooding and/or riverine flooding,” a spokesperson said.

“Storm and flood impacts may interrupt essential services such as electricity, phones, internet, water and sewerage.

“People in these areas need to closely monitor weather and road closures and make informed decisions early based on individual circumstances.

“Residents should monitor the situation and be prepared to evacuate if/when instructed to do so.

“A flood evacuation order will be issued by the NSW SES if and when evacuations are required.”

Residents are asked to monitor the NSW SES and Bureau of Meteorology websites for the latest advice.
