Man dies in floodwaters amid Victoria's horror weather

A man's body has been found in flood waters in Victoria after a day of severe weather.

The man was found in Woodside, Gippsland this afternoon, Victoria Police said.

Emergency services were called to Starlings Lane about 1.45pm after a member of the public notified them of a car nearly submerged in flood waters.

The Victorian town of Traralgon is being evacuated amid rapidly rising floodwaters, as storms and wild weather lash Australia's south-east. (9News)

Police arrived at the scene and confirmed that a deceased man, possibly aged in his 60s, was with the vehicle.

A rescue team has recovered the man and the circumstances surrounding his death are being investigated.
