Following images of water flowing in the Todd River - 19 January, 2007

The Todd River saw more rain as floodwaters hit Alice Springs on Thursday. Two children playing on the Palm Circuit causeway were rescued by police after being swept away in the floodwaters.

All causeways in the town were closed except for the Taffy Pick Crossing at Stephens Road. In fact there were many roads in Central Australia closed or had water over them, after the Wednesday night deluge. By late morning the flow at the northern end of town had peaked at about 1.5 metre deep, reaching from bank to bank, and which was the highest since January 2001, when it reached 1.7 metre with the river breaking its banks.

The following images were taken Friday morning, with water easing, but still showing a constant flow out through Heavitree Gap.
