Current Flood Assessment May 6 2018

Diamantina River

At Birdsville the flood has dropped well below bridge approaches so access is as normal.

Roads east of Birdsville to Windorah and Quilpie and roads into South Australia are all open.

Warburton River

Water has now filled Goyder Lagoon.
The Warburton is navigable at 4.5m and rising. Pulse may only last 3 weeks.

Warburton Crossing would be impassable.

Cooper Creek

Has a minor flood at Innamincka over the Causeway.
This will not go much further than Coongie Lakes.
All roads around Innamincka are open.

Walkers Crossing is open the Cooper flood will not reach it.

Lake Eyre North

Very little water will reach The Lake in Belt Bay in May and soon evaporate.
