Victorian SES provides update on flooding river levels

Victoria SES’ Chief Operations Officer Tim Wiebusch has provided an update on the status of several rivers impacted by flooding across the state.

“While we have a number of communities where rivers are starting to recede, there are still many rivers and communities that are under threat of major flooding in these coming days,” he said during a media conference on Monday.

“Starting on the west of the state, the Wimmera River is expected to peak at 3.6 metres tomorrow, being Tuesday.

“At Charlton, similarly good news. The rivers had now peaked on the Avoca at Charlton. It peaked at 7.9 metres, just below the forecast peak of eight metres.

“The floodwaters on the Loddon River now start to affect all of the communities upstream of Serpentine as the waters moved towards the Murray River.”
