South and Central Gippsland in rain zone
The risk of flooding is increasing in rivers and catchments across Gippsland, after falls of up to 60 millimetres and even higher in places.
All local river systems are the subject of a Flood Watch and there are warnings of flooding in the higher reaches of the Snowy River.
It's been a wet 24 hours in parts of Gippsland, with rain continuing today along the coastal areas of South and Central Gippsland and up into the Strzelecki Ranges.
Senior weather bureau forecaster Michael Laczko said areas closer to the coast got the most of yesterday's wind and rain.
