Flooding impacts on north coast car ferry servicesMonday March 4, 2013 - 10:47 EDT
Flood swollen rivers have disrupted car ferry services across the north coast this morning.
The Bluff Point and Ulmurra ferries are not running in the Clarence.
Water levels in the Hastings river have created major problems for the ferry service to Port Macquarie.
Ferry operator Paul Ede said the Settlement Point and Hibbard ferries are both out of action probably until this afternoon at the earliest.
The Hibbard ferry is out, it's been out all night," he said.
"We went out and checked it this morning at 6:00am (ADST), but the river is too high.
"We can't start it with the height of the river it is now.
"It's probably not a bad idea, if you're a parent to look at keeping the kids home today too."
