Marine Rescue provide flood support

Following a request from the New South Wales State Emergency Service, crews from Marine Rescue NSW are currently active in two separate areas affected by flooding, with an additional vessel en route.

Today rescue vessel Broken Bay 20 has been helping to evacuate residents from the Lower MacDonald Valley near Wisemans Ferry, including the evacuation of three children. It is expected that Broken Bay 20 will continue to be tasked in the area around Wisemans Ferry for the next few days.

They will be joined tomorrow by rescue vessel Ulladulla 10.

This afternoon rescue vessel Central Coast 30T will be used to help evacuate a female resident who is isolated in her home along the flooded Wyong River.

Marine Rescue NSW crews remain poised to assist further as required.
