SES helps evacuate two men from a Traralgon home threatened by flooding
A second person has died in treacherous floodwaters in southeastern Victoria after police found a woman’s body in Glenfyne on Friday morning.
Search and rescue officers discovered the body in a vehicle in floodwaters off Maddens Bridge Rd around 10:40 am.
Though the body has not yet been formally identified, police believe it belongs to missing woman Nina, who went missing from Simpson’s home on Wednesday.
The exact circumstances surrounding the woman’s death have yet to be determined, but police do not consider it suspicious.
It comes after a man in his 60s was found dead in water in southeastern Victoria on Thursday.
More wildlife is on the way, with a new evacuation order being issued for anyone living, working or vacationing in the Traralgon Creek area.
The alarm was issued at 12:21 p.m. Friday.
SES crews have responded to 7,400 requests for help in the past 48 hours after strong gusts of wind and torrential rain hit the state Wednesday night and throughout Thursday.
