Wangaratta avoids flood damage

Wangaratta has avoided major flood damage as the torrential Ovens River peaked at 12.78 metres about 10.30pm Wednesday, and SES attention will now shift toward reopening roads in the North East.

SES spokesman Brian Wright said he was not aware of any houses being inundated and no evacuations were ordered.

“I wouldn’t say the worst is over, but yes, (the Ovens) did peak at Wangaratta,” he said.

“And my understanding is that it’s now below that major flood level and is steady.”

Nobody attended the relief centre, which was set up at Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre on Ford Street.

Community meetings will take place downstream in Bundalong and Cobram today.

“I think it’s safe to say our attention is shifting a little bit downstream as we get this fine weather and fortunately no rain for the next couple of days,” Mr Wright said.

The Bogong High Plains Road remained closed due to floodwaters and Bright was still cut-off.

“VicRoads are working to try and get that open as soon as they can in safe manner,” Mr Wright said.

“That will be an attention for today as most of the road closures are. As you’d appreciate, once the water gets off and we can see what damage has occurred, if any, we’ll be working to notify those changes to those road closures once we have that information.”
