Victoria gets inundated by more torrential rain swells

February 15, 2011VICTORIA – VICTORIANS should brace for more rain and flash flooding after storms lashed the state last night. Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Terry Ryan said our summer deluge will continue well into the weekend, the Herald Sun said. “There will be more rain today, and possible storms, with the heaviest rain expected in the ranges,” Mr. Ryan said. “And we’re expecting heavy falls tomorrow night or early Saturday morning.” Mr. Ryan said the weekend storms, which could see 50mm rainfalls, could cause significant flash flooding around the state. Last night, dozens of motorists were rescued by SES volunteers as storms lashed the city and suburbs. The SES recorded more than 400 calls for assistance from residents in the outer eastern and southeastern suburbs. Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs were the worst hit with significant flooding in Lilydale after 69mm of rain fell. –Herald Sun
