Flood Watch: New South Wales River Valleys

Issued at: 28 Mar 2017, 5:15pm (AEDT)



IDN36501
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
New South Wales

FLOOD WATCH FOR THE NORTHERN RIVERS AND UPPER MACINTYRE VALLEY
Issued at 2:28 pm EDT on Tuesday 28 March 2017
Note: This Flood Watch provides early advice for possible future flooding along
all rivers, creeks and overland flow paths within a nominated valley [See note
below].

A cold front moving through NSW during Thursday will interact with moisture
from Tropical Cyclone Debbie, leading to widespread rain over the state's east.
Particularly heavy rain is expected in parts of the northeast on Thursday,
likely continuing into Friday as a low pressure trough deepens near the
Queensland border.

This weather system has the potential to cause river flooding as well as local
flash flooding to develop along the following river valleys from Thursday
onwards:

1. Tweed Valley - moderate to major flooding

2. Brunswick Valley - moderate to major flooding

3. Richmond-Wilsons Valley - moderate to major flooding

4. Clarence Valley - minor to moderate flooding

5. Upper Macintyre Valley - minor to moderate flooding

This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and streams
must monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to
higher ground should flooding develop. Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor
Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for
which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service. Across NSW,
about 70% of Flood Watches are followed by flooding.

FloodSafe advice is available at www.ses.nsw.gov.au

For emergency assistance call the SES on telephone number 132 500.
For life threatening emergencies, call 000 immediately.

Weather Forecast:
For the latest weather forecast see www.bom.gov.au/nsw/forecasts/

Next Issue:
This flood watch will be reviewed by 11am Wednesday [29/03/2017].

Issued at: 28 Mar 2017, 4:15pm (AEST)

IDQ20755
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology, Queensland

Major Flood Warning for the Pioneer River

Issued at 1:38 pm EST on Tuesday 28 March 2017
Flood Warning Number: 5

Major flood levels are possible on the Pioneer River at Mirani late Tuesday
evening.

Widespread rainfall totals of 100-200 mm were recorded over the Pioneer River
catchment in the 24 hours to 9:00 am Tuesday, with local falls of approximately
330-460 mm over the ranges in the upper catchment. In the 4 hours to 1:00 pm

Heavy rainfall will continue during Tuesday, but is expected to begin easing

Rapid river and creek level rises are likely in the upper catchment where the
rainfall is heaviest.

There are currently no observations at Mirani. The river level is expected to
be around the minor flood level (6.00 m) early Tuesday afternoon. Based on the
forecast rainfall, the river level is likely to exceed the moderate flood level

Tropical Cyclone: Tropical Cyclone Debbie - Townsville to St Lawrence, including Mackay, and the Whitsunday Islands, extending inland to Charters Towers, Mount Coolon, Moranbah, and Pentland.

Issued at: 28 Mar 2017, 4:15pm (AEST)

IDQ20023
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
Queensland
Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre

Media: Transmitters serving the coastal and adjacent inland areas between Ayr
and Sarina, including the Whitsunday Islands, are requested to USE the Standard
Emergency Warning Signal before broadcasting the following warning

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 47
Issued at 3:58 pm EST on Tuesday 28 March 2017

Headline:
Debbie now category 3 as it moves slowly inland.

Areas Affected:
Warning zone: Townsville to St Lawrence, including Mackay, and the Whitsunday
Islands, extending inland to Charters Towers, Mount Coolon, Moranbah, and
Pentland.

Watch zone: None.

Cancelled zone: None.

Details of Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie at 4:00 pm AEST:
Intensity: Category 3, sustained winds near the centre of 150 kilometres per
hour with wind gusts to 205 kilometres per hour.
Location: within 30 kilometres of 20.4 degrees South 148.4 degrees East,
estimated to be 45 kilometres south southeast of Bowen and 15 kilometres west
northwest of Proserpine.
Movement: southwest at 12 kilometres per hour.

Severe tropical cyclone Debbie is a category 3 cyclone. The system is forecast
to move slowly southwest over the next 12 to 18 hours before curving to a more
southerly track over inland Queensland. The cyclone made landfall near Airlie
Beach around midday and has started weakening as it moves slowly inland. The
system is expected to move further inland this afternoon and evening, and the
peak winds near the centre will weaken rapidly. However, heavy rain is expected
to continue across the region.

Significant wind gust observations include:

- 262 km/h at Hamilton Island airport at 10:30 am
- 165 km/h at Proserpine Airport 12:57 am
- 148 km/h at Bowen Airport at 2:24 pm

Hazards:
The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of severe tropical cyclone Debbie is impacting the
Whitsunday Islands and the nearby mainland. The centre of the system is now
over land, north of Proserpine. The wind gusts may still reach 205 km/h near
the centre for the next hour.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts over 125 km/h are occurring about the coast and
islands between about Cape Upstart and Cape Hillsborough (north of Mackay),
including Bowen and Proserpine, and may extend further west along the coast to
Ayr during this afternoon. These DESTRUCTIVE WINDS may extend to adjacent
inland areas, including Collinsville, and Mount Coolon later today into this
evening. Destructive winds are no longer expected in Townsville, Charters
Towers, Mackay or Sarina.

GALES are occurring about the coast and islands between about Cape Bowling
Green and St Lawrence. These GALES are expected to extend westwards to
Townsville and inland to locations such as Charters Towers, Pentland, Mount
Coolon, and Moranbah this afternoon and evening.

Abnormally high tides are expected between Bowen and St Lawrence. Large waves
may produce minor flooding along the foreshore. People living in areas likely
to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property
as much as possible and be prepared to help their neighbours.

Areas of heavy rain with the potential to cause severe flash flooding have
developed around the Central Coast and Whitsundays district. These heavy rain
areas are expected to spread further inland through central and southeastern
Queensland. Widespread daily rainfall totals of 150 to 250 mm are expected,
with significantly higher totals possible locally. This is likely to lead to
major river flooding over a broad area this week, and a Flood Watch for coastal
catchments between Ayr and the NSW border, extending inland to parts of the
Central Highlands and Coalfields, Central West, Maranoa and Warrego, and
Darling Downs and Granite Belt forecast districts.

Recommended Action:
- People in the path of the very dangerous cyclone should stay calm and remain
in a secure shelter - above the expected water level - while the very
destructive winds continue.
- Do not venture outside if you find yourself in the eye of the cyclone - very
destructive winds from a different direction could resume at any time.
- Follow the evacuation advice or directions of Police, Emergency Services
personnel and local authorities.

People elsewhere along the coast between Ayr and Townsville and inland areas,
including Collinsville, Charters Towers, Pentland and Moranbah, should complete
preparations quickly and be prepared to shelter in a safe place.
- Boats and outside property should be secured.
- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster
Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)
- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service on 132
500 (for assistance with storm damage, rising flood water, fallen trees on
buildings or roof damage).

Next Advice:
The next advice will be issued by 5:00 pm AEST Tuesday 28 March.

This warning is also available through TV and Radio Broadcasts; the Bureau's
website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 212. The Bureau and the State
Emergency Service would appreciate this warning being broadcast regularly.
