Major flooding has caused disruptions to parts of Victoria’s train network with Melbourne experiencing a month’s worth of rainfall overnight, making it the wettest day in March since 1929.
The Bureau of Meteorology reports that the weather is caused by ex-tropical cyclone Esther, whose effects have also been felt in northern and eastern Australia.
However, the remnants of Esther have not passed yet, with the Bureau warning that flash-flooding and thunderstorms may still occur in the coming days. Conditions are expected to ease by the late weekend.
Severe weather warnings are currently in place for the Alpine Region, Wodonga, Wangaratta, Corryong, Bright, Shepparton and Falls Creek due to damaging winds and heavy rainfall.
