The Narrabri Creek is expected to peak at 7.4 metres by Tuesday morning.

In its latest flood update, the SES advised the creek was at 7 metres and still rising.

“Yesterday morning we modelled a 7.4 metre flood before we released the streets and door knocked, to be prepared in case a change was released,” the latest alert reads.

“The Namoi River at Boggabri may reach around 8.50 metres during Sunday, with minor flooding. As flood water moves downstream of Gunnedah further rises are expected at Boggabri.

“The Namoi River at Wee Waa (Glencoe) is currently at 7.33 metres and steady, with major flooding. An extended peak around this level is expected for about the next week.”

The SES has released a map of areas in Narrabri that could be impacted by the rising water levels.

The streets are highlighted in the map below:

The SES has remodeled its map of Narrabri, above the 7.4m prediction, and highlighted the streets possibly affected. The SES has crews out door knocking these streets.

Don’t play in floodwater, SES urges

The SES is encouraging people not enter floodwater, this particularly includes children not playing in the water.
“We know it’s exciting for kids to see this water, however, we urge parents to not let their children play in it,” the SES advised.
“The risk is far greater then it looks. Please never drive, ride or walk through floodwater.”
