How's the water aroundCharleville, Emerald etc - saw pics from the bridge at Emerald - boy that is heaps of water, it's a very high bridge - hopefully some of it will head to some of the dams where they need it - but heard a guy on TV last night say it will head out to Rockhampton - (this is the Warrego River) -
Lets all hope everyone stays safe in the affected areas.

Was up that way in September 07 it was as dry as chips.
It's hard to even emagine that much water around that area.
I also hope everyone stay's safe.
We can certainly do with some of the water in the Darling system and it's heading our way.

Cheers Scoof ... S.A.

The Warrego is flooding at Charleville and flows into the Darling. The Nogoa is flodding at Emerald and flows out to see near Rocky.

The Emerald water is heading for the Fitzroy river and Rockhampton. Emerald is on the eastern side of the great divide.

The Charleville water is heading for the Darling river and Adelaide (reach there about mid-winter)

Thought photos were great - having been in the area mid last year - could just picture where these places where - boy last time we were near that bridge - there were campers down there.
Didn't mean to sound ignorant re where water was going - and yes I know water is wet! - just making a comment on the enormity of the whole situation up there - - we are indeed a land of drought and flooding rains!!!

saw a report on the news tonight about where all the water will end up. basically said (as mentioned earlier) that anything east of the great divide (emerald area) will end up in the fitzroy and come out at rocky, no flooding expected down around the rocky area.
other waters on the west of the great divide (longreach etc.) will end up heading for lake eyre, only thing is they reckon it won't reach that far and will dry up by the time it hits the western border line of qld.

They were talking about river levels at around 6m in rocky between the 25th and 29th.

There is still about 10 inches of rain flow to get into the Fairbain Dam yet that I don't think they relise is comming later in the week.
