Theodore residents evacuated

RESIDENTS of Theodore have been successfully evacuated as floodwaters remain steady.

Only police and emergency services personnel remain in the township which has copped a battering in the past few weeks.

The current river level at Theodore sits at 14.13 metres and is steady.

A number of family pets have been evacuated, with some pets still to be evacuated from the town. Arrangements have been made for care to be provided to pets remaining in Theodore.

The Theodore River remains at 14.13metres and police will continue to monitor levels over the coming days and assess when residents will be able to start returning to the town.

The Bureau of Meteorology advised heavy rainfall in the Upper Dawson River  was expected to produce fast river level rises and a return to moderate to major flood levels at Taroom.

A pilot from Stirling Helicopters provided The Observer with photographs showing the extent of the flooding.
