Sydney is currently in the middle of a major rainfall event with major flood warnings going out, evacuations under way and roads being inundated with flash flooding as extreme rainfall continues to fall.

In Picton NSW RFS crews are assisting the NSW SES with sandbagging shops and homes across the Picton CBD as Stonequarry creek continues to rise. The NSW SES has advised locals to prepare to evacuate.

In Woronora and Bonnet Bay NSW RFS are doorknocking homes after an evacuation order was put in place after heavy rain overnight. The evacuation order is for all properties on Thorpe Road, Prince Edward Park Road between Thorpe Road and Deepwater Estate and all properties in Deep Water Estate.

An evacuation order has just gone out for parts of Chipping Norton for the following streets, Newbridge Road between Riverside Road and east to Georges River, Davy Robinson Drive, Rickard Road and Arthur Street.

A severe weather warning remains in place for heavy rainfall for people in Metropolitan Sydney, Illawarra, South Coast, parts of the Hunter, Central Tablelands, and Southern Tableland Forecast Districts.

Six-hourly rainfall totals of 60mm to 120mm are expected with up to 180mm in coastal areas.

24-hour rainfall totals to 9am this morning included the following: Darkes Forest 207mm, Macquarie Pass 200mm, Rose Bay 167mm, Cronulla South 160mm, Randwick 155mm, Mount Pleasant 150mm, Reverces 134mm and Nowra 132mm.

On the Nepean-Hawkesbury River system, a Major flood warning is in effect for Menangle where it will exceed the March 2022 flood event and reach levels similar to the April 1988 major flooding event. Major flooding is also likely at Wallacia and Camden from Thursday evening.

North Richmond will also experience major flooding but at this stage it will not be as bad as the March 2022 flooding event. Warragamba dam continues to spill and further rainfall could worsen the situation. Penrith and Windsor are expected to have moderate flooding on Friday afternoon.

On the Georges and Woronora River system, major flooding is expected at Liverpool and Milperra from Thursday afternoon with minor flooding along the Woronora River.

Whilst many river systems are flooding, flash flooding is causing chaos across Sydney with many roads closed and others crawling at a snail pace due to water over the roads. As well as businesses and homes being inundated with flash flood waters across parts of Sydney.

In a video posted by 10 News on twitter, teachers at Corpus Christi Catholic School in St Ives tried in vain to prevent flood waters getting into the school hall.

Another video posted by the ABC Journalist Dale Drinkwater showed major flash flooding in Dee Why this morning.

The M7 Northbound is currently closed after two trucks collided near Cowpasture Road, resulting in significant traffic chaos on both the M7, Cowpasture Road and Hoxton Park Road. No information is known on the condition of the drivers at the accident or if they sustained any injuries.
