Potential Flood Alert 1

FLOOD WATCH FOR THE INLAND RIVER VALLEYS OF NEW SOUTH WALES
Issued at 3:00 pm EST on Thursday 29 September 2016
Note: This Flood Watch provides early advice for possible future flooding along
all rivers, creeks and overland flow paths within a nominated valley [See note
below].

There has been significant rainfall and flooding in the NSW inland catchments
over the past month, and flood warnings are current for the Lachlan,
Murrumbidgee, Macquarie, Bogan, Namoi, Murray, Paroo, Warrego, Culgoa and
Barwon rivers.

The low pressure system is currently centred near western Victoria and is
moving east. A vigorous cold front, also moving east, has been moving across
NSW since Wednesday evening and is currently located through north east NSW.
Showers and thunderstorms are forecast with both of these systems.

This weather system has the potential to cause prolonged and renewed flooding
in the following river valleys over the next 24 to 48 hours:

1. Lachlan (including Mandagery Creek and Belubula River) - renewed moderate to
major flooding

2. Macquarie (including Molong Creek and Bell River) - renewed minor to
moderate flooding in the valley and renewed major at Warren

3. Bogan - renewed minor to moderate flooding

4. Murrumbidgee (including Tumut River) - renewed minor to moderate flooding


This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and streams
must monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to
higher ground should flooding develop. Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor
Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for
which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service. Across NSW,
about 70% of Flood Watches are followed by flooding.

FloodSafe advice is available at www.ses.nsw.gov.au

For emergency assistance call the SES on telephone number 132 500.
For life threatening emergencies, call 000 immediately.
