The State Emergency Service advises that people: 

  • Don't walk, ride or drive through flood water; 
  • Keep clear of creeks and storm drains; 
  • Be aware that in fire affected areas, rainfall run-off into waterways may contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks; 
  • Be alert that in areas recently affected by fires, heavy rainfall increases the potential for landslides and debris across roads;
