From NT Police Facebook:

Quote:
W/C Phil Emmett wishes to advise the Alice Springs community that heavy rain has inundated many of our roads and in some cases homes. NTES are responding to requests for assistance to the homes, local police and ASTC personnel are working hard to get controls in place on our flooded roads.
Telegraph Tce and Stott Tce northbound lane is flooded and closed; all the causeways including across the Todd River including Taffy Pick are closed and the power station detour is opening; Undoolya Road is closed; Dixon Road is closed; there is significant flooding along South Terrace, Larapinta Drive and other roads in town. Drivers are asked to excercise extreme caution or avoid travelling at all until the roads drain; more rain is expected and it is likely roads will flood again.
NTES are responding to calls for help at twenty homes; those affected by the flooding and requiring assistance can continue to call the number provided below

Reckon last time Alice had rain this big was probably Easter 2000 - ex TC brought in massive rains - the river was over the highway in the gap for a few hours.

The town area has had consistent rain since 8 pm, nothing like last night but enough to get creeks rising again.
Bond Springs has just nocked up 200 mm for this event.

My wife has just off the phone with a former colleague at Nyirrpi (420km NW of Alice).

Apparently massive damage has been done to the Tanami Road beyond Tilmouth Well, the Yuendumu-Nyirrpi Road and, presumably, the other roads in the area. Apparently these roads I've mentioned are closed to all traffic for 2 weeks. [Don't take this as official obviously: check with authorities for official and latest advice.]

Nyirrpi community is having to have food flown in as food trucks cannot access. From a worker who's been there for 12+ years, she said it's the worst road damage she's seen.

Forget Alice Springs, Birdsville reached a whopping 47C today, eclipsing their previous March record by 2 whole degrees and even beating their February record eek eek Will be interesting to see the official temp when it comes out, but that's got to be close to the Australian record for March.

Birdsville's 46.5C doesn't quite make it on to the top 10 list of Australia temperature records for March. 47.8C is the high at Carnavon in WA in 2007. It is Queensland's second highest March temperature though, and pretty impressive really considering how late into the month it is.

Australia's latest 46C+ day after summer.
Maybe it could be the latest 45C, but that's a bit hard to do the research on.

Crazy random hail storm in Alice today - hit in the ilparpa area - almost looks like snow from the photos posted! Been many years since the last one that hit just north of town in the catchment.

Good storm front south west of Alice at the moment.
Hopefully some of the stations are getting some rain out of it.

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Northern Territory

Initial Flood Watch for Western Inland Rivers

Issued at 12:42 pm CST on Tuesday 3 May 2016
Flood watch number: 1

A trough will deepen over Western Australia over the next few days and move towards Central Australia. A cloud band associated with this trough will extend across southwestern parts of the Northern Territory bringing a high chance of widespread rain.

Rainfall developing over the Tanami and Lasseter districts on Thursday will then extend further east before clearing late in the weekend or early next week. Possible heavy falls over the Lasseter and Tanami Districts could bring up to 100mm of rain before the cloud band clears.

Widespread areas of inundation can be expected in the Tanami and Lasseter districts on the weekend. This is expected to affect road access in many parts with some roads becoming impassable. Some communities may also become isolated.

See www.bom.gov.au/australia/warnings/ to view all of the Bureau's current warning products.

The Northern Territory Emergency Service advises that people should:

- Stay away from flooded drains, rivers, streams and waterways

- Avoid driving into water of unknown depth and current

- Stop children playing in or near floodwaters

- Create your own sandbags if there is flooding, by using pillowcases and shopping bags filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home

- Be careful of fallen power lines. They are dangerous and should always be treated as live

For emergency help in floods, storms and cyclones call 132 500.

Emergency information including the latest road conditions is available at www.securent.nt.gov.au

Weather Forecast:
For the latest weather forecast see www.bom.gov.au/nt/forecasts.

Next Issue:
The next flood watch will be issued by 1:00 pm CST Wednesday 4 May 2016.

See www.bom.gov.au/nt/flood/brochures/NT_FloodWatchBrochure.pdf for further information about flood watch in the Northern Territory.
