Issued at 09:52 AM EST on Wednesday 20 January 2021
Flood Watch Number: 2
MINOR FLOODING EXTENDING TO NINDIGULLY BRIDGE FRIDAY
A minor flood peak is moving down the Moonie River, with the peak currently between Flinton and Mt Driven.
No significant rainfall is expected over the next few days.
Moonie River to Flinton:
The Moonie River at Flinton is currently at 2.70 metres and falling, after peaking around the minor flood level (3.00 m) Tuesday evening.
The river level is approximately 1.50 metres above the level of the Moonie River Causeway.
The river level is expected to continue easing during Wednesday but renewed river level rises are possible later in the week as floodwater from the upper Moonie River arrives.
Moonie River downstream of Flinton:
River levels are rising along the Moonie River at Mt Driven and will extend downstream over the next few days.
There are no river level observations currently available at Nindigully Bridge but based on the automatic station downstream the river level is expected to be below the minor flood level (2.20 m) and steady.
The Moonie River at Nindigully is likely to reach the minor flood level during Friday.
Flood Safety Advice:
Remember: If it's flooded, forget it. For flood emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500. For life threatening emergencies, call Triple Zero (000) immediately.}
