Final Flood Warning for the Latrobe River.
Issued at 8:47 am EST on Tuesday 18 September 2012
No significant rainfall has been recorded in the Latrobe River catchment since
9AM Monday. Water levels are now subsiding in the Latrobe River around Rosedale.
Scattered showers with the chance of thunderstorms have been forecast for the
remainder of Tuesday. The forecast rainfall is not expected to cause renewed
stream rises in the Latrobe River.
The Latrobe River at Rosedale peaked at the Minor Flood Level (4.0 metres)
during Sunday and Monday. The river is now below the minor flood level and
slowly receding. High stream levels will persist around and downstream of
Rosedale for several days.
