Wettest month in history for state's north and west

More than 200 millimetres fell in the west and north in the past week alone, compared with a weekly January average of 20 to 30 millimetres.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Terry Ryan said weather stations near Castlemaine, Kyneton and Bendigo, and the Mallee and Wimmera regions, had recorded not only their wettest January, but their wettest month.

''It's the worst flood in western Victoria in their history as far as our records go in terms of the depth of water and the number of places affected … For some of them it's double their previous record, which go back more than 70 or 80 years.''
