Recorded rainfall during the past few days has caused some stream rises in the
Pilbara Coastal Rivers.
The river levels in the catchment are expected to remain below the minor flood
level as flood waters continue to move downstream over next few days.
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.
