Hi Folks,

I refer to a post I made in March this year concerning rainfall in the SEQ
region in Feb. Noting that the last time we had this amount of rain was in
1956 - the same year the Murray flooded. (see below)

Peter Fuller correctly pointed out that the '56 flood was from a combination
of Rainfall in both the West NSW region and Northern Vic Catchment areas.

Now we have flooding in Northern Vic, any thoughts on the Murray flooding

Apparently the Darling will be in full flood due to the recent rainfalls,
but the catchments that fill the Murray (southern NSW and northern VIC)
hasn't received the same amount of rainfall.
I'd say the 1956 event was sum of major rainfalls in both catchments, so 
it probably wont reach the same extent.

Hi Steve -
The Murray flooded.  The water peaked at 12.3M at Morgan, breached all
levees and was the highest flood recorded since white settlement.

Hi All.

S/W Qld's current rain for March - 248mm.
Wettest on record for March - 310mm.
When? 1956. What event took place in 1956?
