Rapid downpours bring more flooding to Victoria

 

February 5, 2011VICTORIA – Overnight on Saturday residents in the state’s northeast, particularly in the Buckland Valley and Sunday Creek, were advised that severe thunderstorms were likely to produce intense rainfall and flash flooding. The flood alerts come after emergency services received more than 3500 calls for help, people were plucked from rescues trapped cars and inundated homes, while several major roads and train lines were closed when the deluge began on Friday evening. The storm also wiped out flocks of birds (right). In some parts of the state 100 to 150 millimetres fell in just a few hours, causing severe flash flooding. Some towns have been inundated by floodwaters even before they recovered from flooding that occurred last month.” –The Age
