The South Australian State Emergency Service (SASES) is adopting the Australian Warning System in the way we display our flood warnings.
All SASES flood warnings will incorporate the nationally consistent flood icon consisting of an illustration of a house in floodwater.
The background colour of each flood warning will be different depending on the warning level. Advice flood warnings will have a yellow background. Watch and Act flood warnings will have an orange background. Emergency Warning flood warnings will have a red background.
Flood – Advice - (Yellow)
A flood has started. There is no immediate danger. Stay up to date in case the situation changes.
Flood - Watch and Act - (Orange)
There is a heightened level of threat. Conditions are changing and you need to start taking action now to protect you and your family.
Flood - Emergency Warning - (Red)
An Emergency Warning is the highest level of flood warning. You may be in danger and need to take action immediately. Any delay now puts your life at risk.
