Murwillumbah area residents have sought refuge in the ceiling cavities and on the roofs of their houses, as emergency services are unable to dispatch boats due to safety risks.

Flood records have broken in the town and there are a significant number of people needing flood rescue in the area.

The State Emergency Service (SES) is working to get rescue planes in the air, but winds of between 50 and 90 kilometres per hour are expected.

In Lismore, sirens sounded early this morning to warn residents they must leave immediately due to "unprecedented" flood levels across the north coast.

The earth appears to be transitioning at a faster pace and I would fully expect to see the UN-expected at all times in regards to weather.

The cyclone is moving down the coast. QLD/NSW copped the depression, as said its frequent now. Its OK Aus know how to help out their neighbors.
