BURNETT RIVER AT BUNDABERG AT MINOR FLOOD LEVELS

This afternoon, the Bureau of Meteorology updated their flood warning for theBurnettRiver.

The Bureau has refined their forecast peak during the day as more data has become available following the heavy rain of the last few days.  Minor flooding will continue rising slowly at Bundaberg for the remainder of today, with further slow rises on Monday and a peak at minor flood levels on Monday.  The river was 4.1m at 4.30pm today.  River levels should remain within the minor range for the next few days.  The Bureau advises that river heights are expected to reach about 5m, but not expected to exceed the moderate flood height of 5.5m.

Residents in low-lying properties can expect to see flood water in their yards but based on current modelling by BOM this water is not expected to go over floor board levels for any homes in Bundaberg.  However, residents and business owners in low-lying areas are advised to remain vigilant.  They are also encouraged to take precautions as appropriate, as part of their normal preparedness activities.

Residents will also see flooding in the usual low-lying roads and streets near the Bundaberg CBD and sporting fields at Kendalls Flats. 

Residents across the region should listen out for updates on local radio.  Bundaberg Regional Council will also provide regular updates via their website and Facebook page.   The Bureau of Meteorology webpage (www.bom.gov.au/qld) provides latest rainfall totals, river conditions and warnings – Bundaberg Regional Council recommends residents monitor these reliable information sources.

The Bundaberg Local Disaster Management Group and Bureau of Meteorology will continue to monitor the situation closely.  Bundaberg Regional Council’s local disaster coordination centre has been activated; for further information or assistance call 1300 883 699.

For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

People are advised that they should:

  • Drive to weather conditions
  • Avoid driving, walking or riding through flood waters and
  • Keep clear of creeks and storm drains
