NSW SES is directing residents and businesses within Western part of Wisemans Ferry to evacuate the following area NOW:
Properties along River Rd from Douglas Creek to the edge of Wisemans Ferry town centre.
Use the following Wisemans Ferry Evacuation route to move to safety outside the flood affected area: Proceed along River Rd to Old Northern Road and head south to Castle Hill.
Why we are directing people to evacuate: Once floodwater reaches 3.15 metres at the WEBBS CREEK (WISEMANS FERRY), the area will be isolated. If you remain in the area you may be trapped without power, water and other essential services and it may be too dangerous to rescue you.
Where to go: Stay with family, friends or at accommodation outside of flood areas. If you are unable to do so, an evacuation centre has been established at Castle Hill RSL, 77 Castle Street Castle Hill.
For emergency help in floods and storms, call the NSW State Emergency Service on 132 500. In life-threatening situations call triple zero (000) immediately.
