Burketown is on the Albert River, to the West is the Nicholson & the East the Reichardt, with lots of little creeks here & there feeding them.

With the current flooding, all three rivers have effectively become one river, over 50km across with just little patches of higher ground here & there, and this is roughly 30km from the coast (image in post above).

All that flat land and all that water.

Images reveal the scale of catastrophic flooding in the Gulf of Carpentaria.


Stay safe and dry.

The rain is really dumping down here this morning along with some good rumbles of thunder so it's going to be a wet road trip for me today.

Stay safe and dry.

Cheers.

It's taken a month, but the main body of flood waters have made it down to Bedourie.



The flood is expected to peak in the next week or so, as it continues it's way down to Lake Eyre.
Outback town of Bedourie becomes an island as Queensland flooding continues.
After four months of flooding, residents have started referring to the water surrounding them as "the Bedourie Sea".

Most of the towns supplies have been flown in since early this year.
"The truck that comes from Townsville has been hampered a bit," Cr Dare said.
"The other truck that comes to Bedourie, we've only had it in three times since Christmas — the rest has been flown in.
"When we get our next truck in, I reckon it'll be about the 18th of April.

"She'll be a pretty big order."

The NW of the country is about to get smashed.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Ilsa to cross WA coast as powerful category five system.

People in the path of Severe Tropical Cyclone Ilsa have been ordered to take shelter immediately after it intensified into a powerful category five system ahead of its final charge towards Western Australia's northern coastline.

Ilsa is 155 kilometres north of Port Hedland with sustained winds near its centre of 205 kph and enormous gusts to 285 kph.

People between Bidyadanga, Port Hedland and out to Marble Bar — but not including the town sites of Bidyadanga and Marble Bar — are now in red alert lockdown.

Extreme wind gusts of up to 315 kph are expected in areas near Pardoo Roadhouse and De Grey when the cyclone makes landfall tonight or in the early hours of Friday morning.

As a category five system, Ilsa is rated at the highest level on the scale measuring cyclone strength, and could be one of the most powerful cyclones to make landfall in WA.....
Stay safe and dry.

Cheers.

Well Cyclone Ilsa hit the coast at 2am (on that side of the country) as a Cat.5 system and I'd imagine that the damage reports will come pouring in once the sun lights up that side of the continent.

Stay safe and dry.

Cheers.

It seems that those down south will see more of this for a while.

Southern lights events expected to increase over next two years as sun reaches solar maximum.

No wonder it's so f'ing cold here today.

Cold front delivers snow, hail to large parts of Australia with more cold weather to come.

Snow, strong winds, wild surf hit NSW as weather records set in freezing autumn night.

It kicked off here today at 0C (felt like -5C) and reached 11C (felt like 3C) while -3C is expected tomorrow morning, though we shouldn't have this gale blowing with 16C being expected, and if the breeze drops off overnight we maybe in for a good frost.

Cheers.

The snow skiers should be happy.

Sydney set for driest winter since 1938, good news for snowgoers.

Meanwhile just get our butts frozen further north.

Stay warm.

Cheers.

It looks like our snow season is at an early end.

Australia thaws in mid-winter warmth — is winter over?
