7am Photos of Tweed River’s moderate flood, peaking hopefully @ 4.2 metres.

Here are some images from a drive around Murwillumbah at 7am this morning, as the Tweed was peaking at 4.2 metres. Flood waters invaded Taylor’s corner, and fridges were evacuated. The SES was out in force, as were TSC trucks. Very few motorists were out.

There was substantial wave action on the Tweed River, with very strong currents fighting gusty winds in spectacular fashion.

Photos were taken with a Telstra T-Hub2.
