Tropical Cyclone Iggy is now a memory in southwestern Australia but it made its presence known when it made landfall on Australia's Sunset coast on February 2, 2012. NASA's TRMM satellite provided measurements of rainfall rates as it headed toward landfall and noticed heavy rain was falling in some coastal areas.
Major flooding peaked at 6.53 metres at 6pm Tuesday (17th Feb) at Diamantina Lakes, and at 8am was 5.84 metres and falling. Minor flooding continues at Monkira with renewed rises and moderate to major flooding expected by the end of the week. Major flooding continues in the Georgina River between Urandangi and Marion Downs. Moderate flooding continues in Eyre Creek between Bedourie and Glengyle. Major flooding peaked at 9.03 metres at 2pm on 18th Feb at Roxborough Downs, and at 8am was 8.99 metres and falling. Glenormiston is nearing a peak and was 7.27 metres at 7:30am.
