Launceston preparing for weekend delugeSaturday August 17, 2013 - 10:02 EST
The State Emergency Service is warning residents in the Tasmania's north to be vigilant, after more rainfall overnight.
The SES says there has been less rainfall than expected overnight but it's continuing to monitor the situation.
Hundreds of sandbags have been delivered to people in flood-prone areas with minor flood warnings current for the North and South Esk Rivers and the Meander River.
Spokeswoman Mhairi Revie says there were no call outs overnight.
"Obviously that is just one of the bands of rainfall that we are expecting that has gone over night so we are still expecting more rainfall so people need to be aware that the weekend has yet to bring more rain with it," she said.
For emergency assistance with flooding, people are advised to contact the SES on 132 500.
