Rain continues to fall in GippslandCat McGauran, Thursday June 13, 2013 - 14:36 EST
More than 80 millimetres of rain has fallen on central and west Gippsland in the last 24 hours.
Up to 100 millimetres was predicted to fall in East Gippsland today.
Beef farmer Glen Heath received 46 millimetres overnight on his property at Lindenow in East Gippsland, and is expecting to get the same again today.
Mr Heath is welcoming the rain, after much of East Gippsland suffered through a dry start to the year.
However, he says the cropping and vegetable farmers will not be able to take much more.
"On the hill country, where we are, we can almost take as much rain as you can give us.
"It'll fill the dams, they've been quite low.
"But some people, the cropping blokes and the vegetable blokes have probably nearly had enough."
