Wild weather forces schools to close
ALL schools from Corindi to Urunga and west to Dorrigo will be closed tomorrow.
As wild local weather intensifies and the risk of flash flooding remains, the SES made the recommendation to all school principals and they all took heed of the advice.
Dorrigo mountain has been the worst hit area so far with heavy falls battering the plateau all morning. The Waterfall Way is now closed.

Lavendar's Bridge in Bellingen is also now under water and students from the local primary and high schools have been advised to go home. Bellingen Agricultural Show has also been cancelled.
Most schools in the Coffs Harbour region have evacuated students also on the advice of the SES.
Unfortunately, the Bureau is predicting the worst is yet to come.
"The low of the Queensland coast is set to deepen and move south," Coffs Harbour Bureau of Meteorology duty observer Greg Crow said.
"So it looks like for the rest of today, tonight and tomorrow we’re in for more heavy rain. It could produce between 150 and 300mm in the next 24 to 48 hours."
