Vic Floods 2011

Looks like Vic are now experiencing flooding. Let's HOPE that it is not as devastating and heart breaking for them as it has been for many here in Qld.

Not "as" bad as Qld, but many towns have had record breaking rain and river peaks / floods

I'm high and dry here in Stawell, but we couldn't go in any direction a couple of days ago.
Trucks lined up as far as I could see waiting for the the go ahead to keep going west, but
nothing allowed through From Stawell to Horsham as Dadswells Bridge (half way) flooded
and was still rising yesterday.

Several towns in West and Nth Vic evacuated.
List of closed roads is a long one, we might be a small state but we have a lot of roads :grin:

I'm guessing a lot of this water will end up in the Murray and give those downstream problems as well.
Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.
