  • In November 1934, a storm surge caused significant flooding along Elwood Canal and possibly further upstream. Runoff from the upstream catchment was likely to be a contributing factor. The extent of flooding is unknown.

  • In May 1935, a storm surge caused significant flooding along Elwood Canal and possibly further upstream. Runoff from the upstream catchment was likely to be a contributing factor.
