Raining cats and dogs
Yarrawonga received a deluge of spring rain last Thursday afternoon, resulting in flash flooding and street closures.
The Bureau of Meteorology reported 42.2mm of rain falling in the 24 hours between 9am Thursday to 9am Friday.
Most of that fell in just an hour or two on Thursday afternoon with drains in some streets, including Belmore Street, unable to cope with the heavy falls.
Shoppers scurried to move cars as the gutters filled and footpaths were submerged.
Water covered residential roads in several areas, including Witt Street and Murphy Street, resulting in short term closures.
The intersection of the Murray Valley Highway and Belmore Street was also hit hard with vehicles struggling to drive through the flood waters.
Thankfully the water subsided quickly after the storm produced the highest rainfall for October so far, with more showers predicted for the remainder of the month.
