It was a busy weekend for the Yass-Hilltops SES with the locals responding to 21 jobs Young Unit Commander Todd Richens said.

According to Todd 14 of the calls were related to flooding with residents asking for sandbags to protect property.

"The call for the first flood rescue was 7am Sunday morning," Todd said. "A driver was stranded in a sinking vehicle near Gundaroo."

There were five cows along with their calves who were rescued from the Yass River along with five horses.

"Out on the Crookwell road near Boorowa around 30 sheep were saved from flood waters," Todd said. "A flood boat had to be used to rescue all livestock."

According to BoM there is more rain expected to fall on the region from Wednesday morning and will continue to fall right through into next week.
