Residents are being urged to obey any road closure signs as flooding hits part of the region as heavy rain continues to fall.
Wet weather has plagued the Riverina all day with some roads closed due to being submerged under water and the State Emergency Service has trucks at The Rock providing sand bags.
The Rock SES Unit Commander Dani Fraser said they had responded to 15 homes impacted by water on Friday.
"We have had a number of residents who have seen this before that have come up for sandbags in preparation in case it comes up," she said.
"Things have eased off a bit but we are expecting a bit more with the rain so we are getting prepped in case."
While the weather remains bleak, the community has banded together to lend a hand.
"We have had a number of spontaneous volunteers who have come down to fill the sandbags while our SES members have been out sandbagging houses which has been absolutely brilliant," Ms Fraser said.
"We have had council dropping off the sand for us as well ... and closing the roads as we ring them and let them know water is over the road.
"I am hoping that the rain starts to ease off but we will just have to wait to see what the BOM comes out with."
