FLOODING continued to affect the northern region yesterday.
There was minor flooding along the Macintyre River at Boggabilla yesterday afternoon and at 4.25pm the river was sitting at its peak of 9.5m.
By yesterday morning the Mehi River at Moree had fallen below flood level, having peaked near 6m the previous day.
The Gwydir River peaked at 6.38m at Yarraman Bridge late Tuesday afternoon, causing minor flooding.
Waters did not reach as high as expected in Gunnedah, where the Namoi River peaked below flood level.
But there was major flooding north of the border at Goondiwindi, where levels rose to 8.6m yesterday morning.
A flood warning for the Macintyre and Weir rivers remained in place in the afternoon.
In the North West SES region, volunteers from the Moree, Mungindi and Boggabilla units kept an eye on river gauges, monitoring the situation and preparing for the water to come down from Queensland through the Macintyre, Dumaresq and Weir river systems.
Volunteers have also been sandbagging water culverts at Garah as Gil Gil Creek rose.
There could be overland inundation from the Gwydir River into the Gingham and Big Leather watercourses, as well as Moomin Creek west of Moree.
North West region operations officer Wes Macpherson said this would be watched over the next five days and properties could become isolated as a result.
