No good news to report here, I'm afraid.
The entire population of our Central Victorian town was evacuated to the local school last night. When that flooded early this morning, they were further evacuated to a neighbouring town 30 kilometres away.
The Avoca River finally peaked at 8.05 metres - 75cm higher than the levels in September.
80% of the town, including our home, is under up to about 1.5 metres of water. The town is isolated, and there is no power, no potable water and no telephone access.
We are all together in Melbourne - hubby left town after the first evacuation notice yesterday morning. I feel better having him with us.
It feel rather strange not knowing exactly what, if anything, we will be able to salvage. We are not even sure if the things that we moved to higher levels will be high enough. It is all in God's hands now.
Thank you all for your ongoing prayers and messages of support. They are much appreciated.
Tonight we will be drinking champagne.
