BURNETT RIVER AT BUNDABERG PEAKING TODAY AT MINOR FLOOD LEVELS

This morning, the Bureau of Meteorology updated the flood warning for the Burnett River.  The Burnett River is expected to peak today at a minor flood level of approximately 5m.  The river height was 4.85m at 7.30am today.  Further small rises above 5 metres are expected during Monday; however river levels will remain within the minor flood level classification (below 5.5m).  River levels will remain within the minor range for the next few days.

Residents in low-lying properties will likely see flood water in their yards but no homes in Bundaberg are expected to have water over their floor boards.  A number of businesses have been impacted.  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.

The flooding visible in low-lying roads and streets near the Bundaberg CBD and sporting fields at Kendalls Flats will continue for the next few days.

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
