With a lot of rain fallen on the roads, this has created potholes and when full of water can be very difficult to spot in time.
When the water heats up or cools down it causes expansion and contraction causing the pavement to weaken with the added pressure.
Tallong RFS' Cheryl Weston said people need to still exercise caution on the region's roads.
"The Tallong underpass was closed yesterday and it's been very soggy and wet," Weston said.
"We've had around 10 inches of rain. The water level for the underpass was the highest I've ever seen it and I've been her for 18 years.
"There's a lot more water around then any of us expected. We have concerns of winds picking up and trees falling.
"People driving through flood waters need to listen and abide by the rules. We've got big potholes all around here, which is a given with this much rain.
"People need to be educated about driving through flood waters."
When driving through flood waters, here are some tips:
- Try to avoid standing water if you can.
- Don't drive into flood water that's moving or more than 10cm (4 inches) deep.
- Drive slowly and steadily so you don't make a bow wave.
- Test your brakes as soon as you can afterwards.
- Fast-moving water is very powerful - take care or your car could be swept away.
With emergency services very busy, keeping yourself as safe as possible will help tremendously.
