Todd River a 'wall of water': flood warning
Anna Henderson, Friday April 9, 2010 - 10:41 EST


Alice Springs police have put out an urgent warning about a steep rise in the Todd River flow within the next hour. - AAP
Alice Springs police have put out an urgent warning about a steep rise in the Todd River flow within the next hour.

The warning comes after heavy rain in the catchment overnight.

Superintendent Sean Parnell says all causeways with the exception of Taffy Pick causeway will be closed this morning.

Residents are being advised not to enter not to enter the river.

"It is amazing, I have just been down at the Tunks Road Causeway and there was nothing happening there, and then within a matter of seconds there was a wall of water coming down and it was fairly steady strong flow at the moment," Supt Parnell said.

A Melbourne man driving through Alice Springs says the water in the river is overflowing onto the roads.

"When we first saw it at the start at Anzac Hill we saw it roaring down the river. We thought we ought to drive to one of the roads to watch it come up to the road and there was just no water running down the river and then there was just a wall of water coming down it was amazing."

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a flood threat advice for the Alice Springs district.

Forecaster Ashley Patterson says there is a broad band of active thunderstorms extending from the Tanami across Alice Springs to Birdsville.

Mr Paterson said there have been some falls of up to 30 millimetres in some parts overnight but only scattered showers to the north.

"Not much in the Barkly at present one or two storms out on the eastern parts. I think we'll see isolated showers and storms later today but pretty isolated compared to the Alice Springs district," Mr Patterson said.
