Abstract

During the period February 14-17 (1955), very heavy rains fell over most of the State. The rainfall in the Avon Valley-Toodyay districts caused an extremely high flood level to be reached in the Swan river between Guildford and Upper Swan. It is doubtful whether the Swan Valley in these parts have before attained such high level during the summer months. On the night of of February 17, there was a rise in some places as much as 19ft.
