WATCH: The impact of ongoing rain across the region

AS ROUS County Council announces water restrictions have been lifted across the region, a severe thunderstorm warning is in place.

Communities across the Byron Shire have been impacted by the ongoing rainfall in the past week.

This included low-lying areas around Mullumbimby being cut off by flood water along with many roads across the shire.

Showers are still forecast for Byron Bay well into next week.
