The Upper Hunter property has been evacuated as heavy rains continue to hit the area. After the floods early Friday morning, the Casilis police station and nine nearby facilities were evacuated. Moderate floods are expected in Scones on Friday afternoon. Lowland country lands and roads across the Upper Hunter can be affected. Since the roads are closed, it is possible to separate the saturated state in the scones and the main road from Meliwa to the scones may be closed. In Aberdeen, local floods can flood the land in the Blairmore Lane region. According to police, some of the floods are caused by heavy rain puddles while the river is rising. After a severe weather warning was issued to hunters on Friday, thunderstorms can cause strong winds and heavy rains, leading to flash floods. Several major roads have been affected, and Live Traffic NSW reports that the southbound lane of Maitland Road is closed at Hexham. The Golden Highway (Mitchell Line of Road) between the New England Highway and Range Road was also closed on Thursday night. Mild to moderate flood warnings have also been issued for Wollonby Brook and the lower Hunter River basin.
