A slow-moving storm over Hobart has caused flash flooding around the city, with 13mm of rain falling between 6pm and 7pm, but it also caused some beautiful vistas captured by our readers. Tasmania Police warned motorists of flooding on the Tasman Bridge and difficult driving conditions caused by heavy rain. There have also been reports of flooding on Sandy Bay Rd and hail at various locations around southern Tasmania. The Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled its flood watch and flood warning for all south eastern river basins. The bureau has warned small stream and river rises may occur in the Huon River catchment, but expects river levels to remain below minor flood levels.
