SEVERE Weather Warning: SA Braces For More Wild Weather

Thousands of South Australians have been left without electricity after an intense night of heavy rainfall and strong winds. 

Now, severe weather and flood warnings are in place for parts of South Australia as an intense low pressure builds over the state.

The Bureau of Meteorology says the low may pack wind gusts of more than 90km/h and will affect Adelaide and centres to the south-east of the city on Wednesday.

Heavy rain is also forecast, particularly over the Adelaide Hills where falls of up to 80mm are possible, raising the risk of flash flooding.

The bureau says areas most likely to be affected are those along the Onkaparinga, Angas and Bremer rivers.

The State Emergency Service says people should remain vigilant to ensure their own safety in what will be difficult driving conditions.

"Everyone is reminded never to drive through floodwaters. If it's flooded forget it," SES chief of staff Trevor Arnold said.

"Floodwaters can contain all manner of contamination and may be a risk to your health."

Weather conditions are expected to ease across SA later in the day.

Stay safe out there!
