Major Flood Warning for the lower Flinders River and Moderate Flood Warning for
the Norman River

Issued at 8:42 am EST on Saturday 16 February 2019
Flood Warning Number: 39

Floodwaters across the lower Flinders River have commenced to very slowly ease,
based on satellite imagery. Major flooding will continue along parts of the
lower reaches of the Flinders River for the remainder of the weekend and into
next week.

The Flinders River is currently experiencing its most significant flood in at
least the last 50 years. Record floodwaters in places had also broken out into
adjacent catchments.

It is recommended to look at satellite imagery (http://satview.bom.gov.au) to
appreciate the full extent of the flooding in and around the Flinders River
area.

No further significant rainfall is expected, however a chance of a thunderstorm
remains over the next few days.

Many automatic gauges across the Gulf Rivers catchments have returned to
service following a data outage a week ago. However, the data continues to be
intermittent and some gauges are yet to return data.

Flinders River downstream of Richmond:
Flood levels downstream of Richmond continue to very slowly ease, but will
generally remain high into next week. Floodwaters are contracting across the
floodplain, particularly in the area between Etta Plains and Canobie through to
Walkers Bend.

Record major flood levels are expected to have commenced to very slowly ease at
Walkers Bend. However no further data is available from this gauge. The
Flinders River at Walkers Bend will remain above the major flood level (5.60 m)
for the remainder of the weekend and into next week.

Norman River:
River levels on the Norman River between Yappar River and Normanton are very
slowly easing.

The Norman River at Normanton peaked at about 4.91 metres around 06:00 pm
Wednesday 13 February and is currently at 4.72 metres (moderate flood) and
falling very slowly. The river level is expected to remain above the moderate
flood level (4.00 m) throughout the weekend and into next week.

Remember: If it's flooded, forget it. For flood emergency assistance contact
