Flood Warning for along the Diamantina River

Tue 12:47 CST
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology, South Australia

Flood Warning for the Inland Rivers SA

Issued at 12:46 pm CST on Tuesday 23 April 2019
Flood Warning Number: 29

Flood waters are beginning to enter South Australia along the Diamantina River
but flooding has eased along the Warburton River.

Significant falls were recorded in the NT and QLD in late March and this has
caused renewed flow along the Diamantina River and Eyre Creek. Flow is now
beginning to cross the border into South Australia along the Diamantina River.
Flood waters along Eyre Creek are also likely to move into South Australia
during the next few weeks.

Although the amount of water is less than the previous event, it may still
cause inundation of flood plains, cutting of some roads and impacts to graziers
in coming weeks.

Flow into Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre has currently eased. Satellite images
indicate the lake is currently about half full. By late May and into June
further inflows to the lake may occur.

Water is also expected to flow into SA from Cooper Creek in the next week or
two. Although this flow will enter the Coongie Lakes, it is not expected to
provide inflow to Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre.

Warburton:
The water level at Poothapoota Waterhole, just downstream of the Goyder Lagoon,
is about 3.20 metres and falling.

Flood Safety Advice:
People are advised to keep away from flowing water.

For flood emergency assistance contact the State Emergency Service on 132 500.

For life threatening emergencies call Triple Zero (000) immediately.
