Finally heavy rains have drenched drought stricken areas of NSW with well over 100mm of rain falling in some regions and more predicted. Some rivers are in flood with a potential flood alert for other rivers. The Hunter Valley and the North West Slopes as well as parts of north eastern NSW are also to be affected by heavy rains.
This all is the result of Tropical Cyclone Laurence. That severe tropical cyclone made all the way inland with continued tropical cyclone warnings which is very unusual.
