Storm warning for northeast SA

A severe storm warning has been issued for South Australia's northeast with fears heavy rain could lead to flash flooding.

The warning extends from the Northern Territory border to as far south as the Riverland.

The Bureau of Meteorology says the storm dropped 30mm of rain on Leigh Creek in just 20 minutes on Tuesday morning.

It also warned of possible damaging winds across the northeast with gusts in excess of 90km/h possible.

But Adelaide largely missed out on forecast rain on Tuesday, which could have caused further problems in the eastern suburbs and the Adelaide Hills after last week's heavy falls.

About 80 homes were flooded and a number of roads severely damaged with some areas copping 100mm of rain over a 24-hour period.

The state government has since paid out 153 grants worth about $81,000 to local residents impacted by the floods, with the money helping with the clean-up and to cover immediate out-of-pocket expenses.
