Local Navigation Warning

All Ports

Location: Gippsland

DATE:  02 November 2022

DETAILS: Mariners are advised that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology is maintaining a flood watch across Central, North East Victoria and Gippsland.

Catchments in the flood watch area are saturated, some of which are experiencing ongoing flooding due to recent rainfall. Storages are mostly at or near capacity and spilling or actively releasing water.

Further river level rises are possible and minor flooding may develop in the flood watch area into Wednesday. Catchments with recent or existing warnings where river levels are elevated may see fast response to rainfall and moderate flooding is possible at some locations.

Flood warnings are current for the Latrobe, Thompson and Snowy Rivers. Although other rivers and catchments do not have flood warnings, there is likely to be a significant increase in the amount of water flowing downstream throughout Gippsland. Areas likely to be affected include:

  • Bemm, Cann and Genoa Rivers
  • Snowy River
  • Tambo River
  • Mitchell River
  • Avon River
  • Macalister River
  • Thomson River
  • Latrobe River
  • South Gippsland Rivers

Gippsland Ports will monitor river heights for further Warnings and Notices.

In the meantime, Mariners are reminded that debris caused by flood water including large trees and timbers may find its way downstream and affect the safe navigation of vessels within the Gippsland Rivers and Lake systems.
