The NSW SES Kempsey unit is urging people to not enter floodwater following localised flooding in Kempsey overnight.
NSW SES Kempsey unit media officer Greg Gill said the Gladstone St underpass poses a problem every time Kempsey experiences localised flooding.
"The road in that area slopes from either end, so people start driving through it but in the middle it gets a lot deeper and that's when they get stuck," he said.
Greg said one driver entered the flooded area on Gladstone St last night before realising they were in trouble.
"The water reached above the motor and the car needed to be pulled out."
Meanwhile the Kempsey SES unit had six call outs to leaking roofs last night.
"Our advice is to prepare homes for heavy rain and to never drive through flood water, it's too dangerous," Greg said.
The SES are also currently monitoring the path of Cyclone Uesi which could potentially bring more heavy falls to the Macleay later in the week.
"We're just waiting to see what happens with the cyclone, if it comes near the coast then we will be in for more rain.
"We're just going to be prepared for what happens."
