Victorian towns told to evacuate or shelter as flood waters rise

The rural town of Rochester north of Melbourne has been told to evacuate.

And people in towns in the riverine area from Seymour to Lake Eildon have been urged to move to higher ground.

Victorian emergency authorities say flood waters are rising rapidly in the area and could get as high as levels seen in 1974 as rain continues.

There are dozens of warnings in place and they are changing rapidly so people in flood-affected areas are being urged to keep a close eye on updates.
