ABC News: "An urgent evacuation order has been issued for Wagga Wagga in southern NSW, with residents being told to leave their homes by 6:00am Tuesday.

The SES says if the Murrumbidgee River reaches an expected peak of 10.9 metres, the levee will be breached and the town's centre flooded.

Region Controller James McTavish says everyone in central Wagga Wagga, about 8,000 people, must get out."
