A Rare Occurrence – 2022
Following images of water in the Todd River – January-February, 2022
The seemingly not so rare occurrence of the Todd River raging through Alice Springs for the second time in three months, occurred after three cumulative days of rain, with much rain falling in the surrounding regions of Alice Springs, and locals recording the Todd River in flow on the 30 January, 2022.
At time of writing, Alice Springs had recorded 130 mm of rain for January and 110 mm for the start of February, 2022.
