Due to soil moisture levels there is expected to be flooding in several areas. There has already been one fatality due to flood waters. Several communities, some of whom were already

affected earlier this year, are expected to be inundated. Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping has been requested by Emergency Management Australia and states to assist with situational awareness and impact analysis by providing daily delineation monitoring products.
