A minor flood warning for Wilsons River has been issued by the Bureau of Meteorology.

Moderate rainfall across the Wilsons River catchment since Wednesday has caused significant river level rises along the Wilsons River and its tributaries, which has the potential to cause minor flooding along the Wilsons River at Lismore today, Friday, January 21.

Further rainfall is possible over the next 36 hours which could cause further river level rises.


Minor flooding may occur along the Wilsons River at Lismore. The Wilsons River could reach 4.20 metres around 11am today.
