Overnight SES crews responded to just over 1200 requests for assistance, leading to 38 water rescues.

Chief Officer Operations at Victoria State Emergency Service, Tim Wiebusch, warns locals not to drive through flash flooding waters.

An Emergency Relief Centre has been opened at the Bendigo Showgrounds for anyone impacted by the wet weather and can no longer stay in their homes. Only impacted residents are to attend the relief centre, if it is safe to get there. If you are unable to travel, please contact the SES on 132 500 or 000 if it is an emergency.
