Wild weather triggers floodingMonday August 19, 2013 - 12:36 EST
Wild weekend weather has caused localised flooding across south-east South Australia.
The State Emergency Service (SES) says a large tree brought down powerlines at Kongorong when it crashed on to Hay Terrace early yesterday evening.
A car crashed into a fence in slippery conditions on Mount Gambier's Penola Road.
SES unit manager Simon Pohl says crews were also called to Pelican Point yesterday after reports two houses were filling with water.
"The natural watertable has risen out of the bores and is flooding a localised area around Rackett's Road," he said.
"We've sandbagged a couple of houses in conjunction with the CFS [Country Fire Service] and the CFS were just on dark clearing a drain to drain the water out."
More rain is forecast across the south-east today.
