Properties in the Gronos Point area, including properties along Gronos Farm Road and Manns Road, were due to depart Sunday morning.

“We currently have 78 flood products deployed including emergency alerts for Oura Beach Camping near Wagga and Western Plains Tourist Park in Dubbo,” NSW SES warned on Sunday.

“Many communities in western NSW have been affected.

“NSW SES is working closely with DPI and Local Land Services to understand the broader impacts on primary producers as floodwaters continue to flow downstream.”

There were more than 70 alerts statewide as of Saturday night and campers at a reserve on the Murrumbidgee River in Wagga Wagga were advised to evacuate by Sunday morning.

NSW SES overnight volunteers have responded to 343 requests for help since 6pm last night – 21 of which were flood rescues.

Conditions in NSW were expected to ease in the early hours of Sunday before tapering off by midday.

In the west of the state, Bathurst 1000 fans were drenched in 100mm of rain and one event was canceled due to torrential rain, but the main race was still scheduled to take place on Sunday morning.
