Flood Warning for the Inland Rivers SA
Issued at 10:07 am CST on Friday 17 May 2019
Flood Warning Number: 37
The water level at the Poothapoota gauge on the Warburton River is continuing
to slowly rise due to renewed flow from the Diamantina River and Eyre Creek.
Although the amount of water is less than the previous event, it is causing
inundation of flood plains, cutting of some roads and impacts to graziers.
Flow into Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre is expected to increase in the next week or
two as new water arrives.
On Friday morning the water level at Poothapoota Waterhole, just downstream of
the Goyder Lagoon, was about 5.3 metres and continuing to rise.
On Friday morning the water level at Cullyamurra Waterhole was about 3.15
metres and peaking. Although this flow will make it to the Coongie Lakes it is
not expected to provide inflow to Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre.
Flood Safety Advice:
People are advised to keep away from flowing water.
For flood emergency assistance contact the State Emergency Service on 132 500.
For life threatening emergencies call Triple Zero (000) immediately.
The next warning will be issued by 02:00 pm CST on Monday 20 May 2019.
