SES flood update 15 nov 2022

Wentworth Shire

Latest flood updates from SES regarding Wentworth and Dareton/Buronga/Gol Gol.

The Bureau of Meteorology advises that major flooding higher than the 1975 flood possible at Wentworth.

Rainfall over the past several weeks has caused renewed and prolonged flooding along the Murray and Edwards Rivers and their tributaries.

Significant breakout flows from Torrumbarry have spilled into the Wakool River. These flows, combined with floodwaters from the Murray and Edward Rivers, have caused major flooding at Wakool Junction and may cause major flooding downstream at Boundary Bend, Euston, Mildura and Wentworth, with levels higher than the 1975 flood event possible.

Forecasts will be progressively refined once upstream flood peaks along the Murray River and its tributaries are observed.

Moderate flooding is occurring at Wentworth.
