The flood crisis from ex-tropical cyclone Debbie has taken a turn for the worse.
There are reports a body has been found in floodwaters south of Murwillumbah in northern NSW.
The area is so submerged that police are unable to access the body.
Authorities had been concerned there would be fatalities as conditions were too dangerous overnight to carry out many flood rescues.
The two main areas of concern are the Tweed area and also Lismore.
