Minor Flood Warning for the Latrobe River
Issued at 11:04 am EST on Thursday 28 July 2016

Minor flooding is continuing in the lower Latrobe River catchment.

The Latrobe River at Rosedale is steady around the minor flood level (4.0
metres). The river is expected to remain around the minor flood level during
Thursday and overnight into Friday.

SES advises that all community members should:
Never walk, ride or drive through floodwater,
Never allow children to play in floodwater,
Stay away from waterways and stormwater drains during and after heavy rain,
Keep well clear of fallen power lines
Be aware that in fire affected areas, rainfall run-off into waterways may
contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks, and heavy rainfall increases
the potential for landslides and debris across roads.
