A different perspective on the the flash flood that occurred a couple of days ago.

The Brachina Overflow flowing strongly.

It’s surprising just how much water can be dropped by a passing thunderstorm, gathered on all the slopes of the nearby ranges and sent hurling down towards Lake Torrens on the western plain.

I’m told most of this water did not make it to the lake….that it spread out and covered a wide area of grazing country.

In just a few hours the creek was just a trickle.
