Floodwatch

The Clonlea Park footbridge was closed to pedestrians at about 9:30am today

The rains have certainly come to Gawler, and our rivers are overflowing all over the place.

We've taken a few pictures from around the town, but we'd love to show off your pictures too. If you've been taking some good shots of the town and how it is coping with these extreme weather conditions, send them to us on gawlercba@gmail.com, or tag us into your Facebook Posts by adding @Gawler Community Broadcasting and we'll share it around so everyone can get to see it.

A bit more seriously though, floods can be dangerous times, the roads can be slick and slippery, everyone wants to rush, and the wind is still pretty terrible. So remember: drive safe, heed all the warnings, look out for and be nice to each other on the roads and about the town.

We're all in this one together, so let's help each other out!

The water is rushing fiercely at the Murray Road ford near Clonlea Park:
