Major Flood Warning For The Paroo River (Qld)
Issued at 02:45 PM EST on Monday 24 February 2020
Flood Watch Number: 3

Major flooding is possible along the Paroo River around Eulo from Wednesday. Strong river rises are occurring along the upper Paroo and its tributaries.
Heavy rainfall was recorded in upper parts of the catchment over the weekend which is causing river level rises. However, there has been no significant rainfall recorded since 9am Sunday. Showers and storms are possible over the next few days.

Paroo River to Eulo:
Moderate flood levels are rising in the upper Paroo River at Allambie, these levels are higher than the peak recorded in late January 2020.
There are no current observations available for the Paroo River at Eulo although river levels are expected to be below the minor flood level (2.00 m).
The Paroo River at Eulo is expected to exceed the minor flood level (2.00 m) from Wednesday. The river level is expected to exceed the moderate flood level (3.00 m) during Thursday and may peak between 4.00 and 4.40 metres from Thursday with major flooding.

Paroo River downstream of Eulo:
Major flooding may occur along the Paroo River downstream of Eulo.
The Paroo River at Hungerford is currently at 1.12 metres and rising.
The Paroo River at Hungerford will remain around the minor flood level (1.00 m) during Monday caused by local inflows, but is expected to recede over the next few days. However, the river level may reach the moderate to major flood level next week as flood waters move down from upper parts of the catchment. A more detailed forecast will be provided once upstream peaks have been observed.

Flood Safety Advice:
