AS of 9.05am, the Bureau of Meteorology cancelled the severe weather warning for abnormally high tides and damaging surf for the Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast areas.

They warn very large ocean waves and swell are still happening along the coast between the Queensland border and Port Macquarie; but they say fears about beach erosion and inundation of low lying areas have eased.

While the low pressure trough in the Coral Sea that's causing all the problems is expected to weaken over the next 12-24 hours; the Bureau has kept all flood warnings for the Richmond/Wilsons, Clarence, Bellinger, Macleay, Hastings, Manning, Orara and Nambucca Rivers remain current.
