Flooding update : 1pm Aug 10th 2020
Eurobodalla Council advises: UPDATED 1pm: Not as bad as it could have been. That’s the verdict this morning after a weekend of wild and worrying weather.
SES has issued an all clear for residents and business owners in the eastern end of Moruya CBD to return to their properties. Details here, plus good info about safety > https://www.ses.nsw.gov.au/evacuation-notices/all-clear-moruya-river-moruya-cbd/
Moruya River peaked just over two metres between midnight and 1am last night, lower than predicted, but caused minor flooding of the eastern end of the CBD and north Moruya. We’re not aware of any shops or homes flooded, which is wonderful. The river is dropping nicely now with the tide.
We’ve also had minor flood impacts in Nelligen village.
Our crews are already at work getting these areas cleared and repaired, and inspecting roads and bridges for damage (we only just finished the July flood clean-up).
Flooding in the Clyde, Moruya and Tuross river catchments has had more significant impacts in rural areas west of the highway, including isolating some properties. Thankfully, all river levels are now dropping.
Our thoughts and care are with those cleaning up today 🧡
Huge thanks to NSW SES for keeping us safe, and our own crews out all weekend - legends all
