Provides contact details for SES, VicRoads and Bureau of Meteorology monitoring of streams in East Gippsland.


Storms can happen at anytime of the year and are the most frequent emergencies affecting Victorians.


  • Riverine flooding occurs when rivers burst their banks, inundating low lying land.
  • Flash flooding usually occurs along creeks and drains which have small catchment areas and results in the rapid rise of floodwaters over a short period of time, sometimes only minutes.


The response agency for all floods in Victoria is the State Emergency Service. Council provides support to communities during the recovery stage. For more information visit the FloodSafe website.
