As heavy rain and flash flooding subside, there is another more toxic threat as overflowing septic tanks have leaked sewage into dozens of yards and streets about 45 kilometres north of Kempsey.

Authorities spent six hours going door to door at Grassy Head overnight evacuating 32 residents from their homes as it is no longer safe for them to stay there.

Residents are settling in at a nearby evacuation centre and everyone must undergo a health assessment even if they have arranged alternative accommodation.

This is the second time in as many weeks locals have had to abandon their homes and it could be up to ten days before they are able to return.
