Over the past 48 hours, Tasmania has experienced extreme weather conditions, resulting in significant flooding, Premier Will Hodgman said.

“Two people are missing and our thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends during this difficult time.”

More than 100 homes have been inundated and many farms, businesses and communities have been affected.

“The Government is currently developing a range of support measures, and I will provide more information as soon as possible.” Premier Hodgman said.

“I have spoken with the Prime Minister and provided him with an update. The Prime Minister has offered the full support of the Federal Government.”

Tasmanians are strongly advised to avoid flood waters and follow the instructions of emergency services personnel.

“On behalf of all Tasmanians I would also like to thank emergency service workers for their efforts to date.” Premier Hodgman said.
