The Evacuation order is still in effect for Cooma, however things are looking up after yesterday's rain saw 500 homes in town evacuated by the SES.
At around midday, creek levels dropped by 20 cms, however a late surge saw them rise again, by more than two and a half metres in less than an hour.
Cooma is one of the worst flood-affected areas, as waters the size of France lash 75% of New South Wales, seeing more than 1,600 people under evacuation orders state-wide.
There have been no serious injuries reported as a result of the floods.
Colin Malone of the SES says that last night was successfully managed, but that SES personnel will remain in action until rains and waters subside.
The Bureau of Meteorology warns that locals should still be aware that rains will continue to bombard Cooma throughout the weekend.
