The rains are 'ereNikolai Beilharz, Friday June 13, 2014 - 14:32 EST
Parts of the Eyre Peninsula have suffered from flash flooding as heavy rain falls across the region.
The highest total reported was a whopping 91mm at the Tumby Bay Foothills, with over 60mm out at Ungarra with people stuck at home unable to go to work or school.
Yallanda Flat has had 70mm and the creek has broke its banks and flooded the oval.
Senior agronomist with Bawdens at Tumby Bay Ron Simpson says that in a lot of areas the soil it already at saturation point, which is great in terms of relieving the pressure of needing more rain any time soon.
He says there are risks of having the rain sitting on top saturated soils though.
‚??One of the things that would concern me is that if the crops were to lay in water for too long, they‚??ll end up rotting and not getting anywhere. If we can get some¬† wind and some drying conditions, it will move on.‚??
Not everyone‚??s had rain though. Michael from Naracoorte in the south-east says he‚??s had no rain over the past few days while other areas have been flooding.
He says that there‚??s no sub-soil moisture, and that he needs to see rain in the next week to ten days to relieve some of the pressure he‚??s facing at the moment.
