A search will resume for a man who went missing in floodwaters near Kyogle during heavy rainfall that hit the New South Wales coast and in Sydney.
Witnesses saw a man being swept away after his vehicle went into floodwaters near Lismore in far north New South Wales, police say, as a heavy downpour and strong winds hit the state's coast.
After receiving record-breaking rain in June and July, parts of western Queensland have received their best August rain in nearly 20 years.
