SA Faces Flood Threat After Wild Storms

Weather conditions in SA are starting to ease but we're not out of the woods yet.

The SES is on high alert with our creeks, dams, reservoirs and rivers full from this week’s storms.

They’ve issued a severe flood warning for a number of areas across the State including a major threat for the Gawler River catchment.


The banks of the North Para River have burst forcing evacuations and road closures in the Barossa Valley.


The drama continues in the Clare Valley where streets remain closed with concern the town of Sevenhill could be inundated by water after a local dam burst.

Minor to moderate flooding is predicted for the Torrens and Onkaparinga.

In the City, the Linear Park trail is closed because of numerous reports of flooding in a number of areas including Paradise and Highbury.

Thousands of customers remain off the grid after strong winds lashed the State again last night.

While a dozen families who lost embryos at the Flinders Fertility clinic have been notified.

They became compromised during the blackout when back-up generators failed.

Where there’s water, expect delays or detours.

Motorists are being urged not to risk driving through flooded roads and catchments.

Public transport should run as normal but it’s best to keep an eye on timetables for any changes.

Anyone needing SES assistance should call 132 500.
