No rainfall has been recorded in the Harvey and Murray River catchments since
9am Thursday. Isolated thunderstorms have been forecast for Thursday.
The recent rainfall has caused stream rises and some areas of minor flooding in
the Harvey and Murray River catchments over the last few days. All rivers have
now fallen below the minor flood level.
In the absence of significant forecast rainfall, the rivers in the Harvey and
Murray River catchments are expected to remain below the minor flood level.
DFES's State Emergency Service (SES) advises people and communities to be aware
that flooding is possible and be prepared to relocate equipment and livestock.
Watch water levels. Travellers need to be aware that road conditions may be
adversely affected and travel plans may need to be reconsidered. Do not drive
into water of unknown depth and velocity.
