Skipton Flood Guide

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) have recently completed works to improve flood warning times for Skipton.

From 10 October, Skipton residents will be able to receive flood warnings for the Mt Emu Creek, which will include a 6 hour warning time for a minor flood, 12 hour warning time for a moderate flood.

While there have been some important changes to flood warning times, it is just as vital to get prepared for an emergency, stay informed and to know what to do.

More information on flood warnings can be found on the BoM website. For advice on preparing for an emergency, visit the VICSES website.
