Rain has been heavy overnight. The rain had eased by mid-morning but is forecast to return this afternoon. Creeks and streams are still very high and fast flowing, making ford crossings very limiting. Higgins are currently out reviewing the network. Many people may have to cross streams and creeks by foot in many areas due to buses and carriers not being able to cross due to high/swift waters. Caution is advised.
