Dozens of residents in Victoria's northeast have been forced to evacuate as severe floods caused by record-breaking rain sweep through communities.
Residents are preparing to evacuate low lying areas of Myrtleford, with other warnings also in place for Buckland Valley near Porepunkah.
"It was so powerful and so scary. We really didn't get much sleep," Euroa resident Sue Thompson said of the record-breaking deluge.
Another resident told the Seven Network she was told to leave her home at a caravan park to avoid the worst of the weather.
"Scary frighting. I didn't know what to expect or whether we'd be coming back or not," Natalie Turnbull said.
The northeast alpine area has copped the heaviest rainfalls since the storm arrived on Friday, with 170mm recorded at Euroa and 200mm at Strathbogie.
Relief centres have been set up in Euroa and Myrtleford with emergency financial relief on offer for those forced out of their homes.
Premier Daniel Andrews urged all Victorians to stay vigilant and look after each other, particularly those in the flood-threatened centres.
"Some of these rainfall totals we've seen are well and truly an entire summer's rain almost in just a 24-hour period," he told reporters in Melbourne.
"That is unprecedented and it really has put a significant strain on many different communities.
The extreme storm was not quite over yet, the Bureau of Metereology warned.
"The event is not quite over, we always watch out with these events for what we sometimes call the sting in the tail before the low finally moves away," senior forecaster Scott Williams said.
Despite criticism of the ominous warnings in Melbourne, heavy rain hit the city on Saturday evening causing flash floods and hundreds of calls to emergency services.
In one case a Maserati driver unintentionally destroyed the luxury sports car after attempting to drive through a flooded underpass in the city's inner west.
There were more than 1300 call outs to the emergency services overall with 133 received by the control centre in just an hour from 5.30pm.
