The storm which occured on the 22/1/79 was generally widespread whereas that which occured on the 3/2/79 3/2/79 7 . 5 3.1 7 2 2 40 38 2 2.5 was concentrated in the upper part of the Todd Catchment north of Bond Springs. Comparing the areal distribution of rainfall for the January 1979 storm with the distribution of the 1965 storms it can be seen that the contributing area for the 1965 flows (i.e. approximately west of the Stuart Highway) forms part of the contributing area for the 1979 flow
