The SES reports that Hobarts Bridge and low lying bridges upstream of Thora in the Darkwood area remained closed on Friday, with an expectation that some residents of Thora and Darkwood will remain isolated until Monday.
More than 140 families at Lavenstrate, Middle Creek, Mulquinnys Road, Buccarumbi and Shannondale were still isolated on Friday, with local flooding in the Coutts Crossing area possibly necessitating resupplies over the next few days.
