GALLERY: Flash flooding causes havoc on Coffs Coast

A SUDDEN downpour turned into torrential rain, flashes of lightning and deafening thunder as parts of the Coffs Coast went under water from flooding.

It didn't take long for the heavy rain filling up creeks, dams and low lying areas.

As daylight broke, people took stock of the damage with farm animals lost in dangerous fast moving creeks, cars swept off roads and the SES back in action after an already busy weekend.

Corama, Upper Orara and Karangi had roads turned into waterways, cutting off traffic in multiple locations including along Mount Browne Road.

According to BOMs latest weather observations for Coffs Harbour Airport, 67.6mm of rain has fallen since 9am.

That came after four-day falls of 300mm to 400mm from Thursday to Sunday.
