MOST roads in the Moree shire reopened today after weekend closures due to floods.
The city's Mehi River peaked near five metres on Saturday night - below minor flood level - and no significant damage was reported.
Minor flooding was recorded at the Yarraman Bridge, 8km north-west of the town, as the Gwydir River peaked at 5.93m at 6am yesterday.
Upstream of Yarraman Bridge, the Gwydir River at Gravesend and Pallamallawa has now fallen below the minor flood level.
It was nothing like February, thankfully.
The Gwydir Highway, east of Moree, was reopened on Sunday morning after it was cut off on Saturday afternoon, but the stretch of highway west of Moree remains closed.
But as the waters recede North West State Emergency Service deputy controller Stephen Basham says motorists should still exercise caution as the situation could change quickly.
Moree Plains Shire Council said the unsealed Burrington, Tyrone and Gillbrook roads would remain closed until further notice with concerns for properties downstream from Yarraman Bridge.
At Gurley, on the Newell Highway 35km south of Moree, motorists should reduce speed and exercise caution, as floodwaters are over the road.
Mr Basham said river levels were "all starting to fall (but) our concern now is properties west of Moree, downstream from Yarraman Bridge on the Gwydir and Mehi rivers".
He said the Big Leather and Gingham watercourses could cause problems.
