Banks swell at Sev­ens Creek

Euroa Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

HEAVY and per­sis­tent rain in re­cent days swelled the banks of the Sev­ens Creek in Eu­roa on Mon­day.

Af­ter more than 100mm fell in the space of four days over both the Sev­ens and Castle Creek catch­ments, re­sult­ing in the SES is­su­ing a mi­nor flood warn­ing as the Sev­ens reached nearly three me­tres in town.

While the flood­wa­ters did not reach ma­jor heights, the vol­ume of rain was enough for emer­gency ser­vices to warn lo­cals to re­main alert and con­tinue to mon­i­tor wa­ter lev­els.

The SES also took the op­por­tu­nity pre­sented by a rel­a­tively mi­nor flood­ing event to re­it­er­ate the im­por­tance of flood safety, and re­mind peo­ple that they should never drive, walk or ride through flood­wa­ter.
