The Bight Bridge at Wingham is submerged beneath Manning River floodwater that is flowing fast and carrying debris.

Tinonee resident Simmi Valgeirsson today shot some amazing footage of the flooded river at Bight Bridge.

“It cleared up in the afternoon, so I could take out the drone,” Mr Valgeirsson posted on Facebook.

MidCoast Council today advised it closed the bridge and reminded motorists to never enter floodwater and obey all signage and directions.

It also directed Manning Valley residents to visit the SES emergency website www.ses.nsw.gov.au and www.myroadinfo.com.au for the latest information.
