Waters edge up

MINOR flooding is expected at Robinvale within days but the State Emergency Service says there is no cause for alarm in Sunraysia.

Buronga Riverside Caravan Park owner Clinton Trood is hoping for the best but preparing for the worst as water levels in the Murray River continue to rise, with talk of a repeat of the 1993 levels, shown by a yellow mark on a park gum tree. Picture: Jayne Alderton.

This is despite authorities using the 1993 Murray River flood level as an indicator for the high levels expected to affect low-lying areas near riverbanks.

A community meeting has been organised for 6pm today at Robinvale’s Masonic Centre on Bromley Road, as authorities update the public on the state of the river.
