EVACUATIONS are underway in northern NSW as rising floodwaters threaten to cut off towns. Thousands of residents have been told to leave.
Helicopters are descending on the region to airlift hundreds to safety.

About 1600 residents in
Moree and 80 people in nearby Biniguy have been ordered to leave their homes immediately as the Mehi and Gwydir rivers continue to rise to levels not seen since the 1970s.
