The people of Warracknabeal can now rest peacefully as the water in the creek is now within its banks. All that is left is the massive levee banks & thousands of sandbags which have to be removed. Our sandbags are now being transported to Swan Hill as they expect the Murray River to break its banks. To think that all this flooding is happening in Summer, when traditionally we do not receive any rain.
This is a portion of the levee which was quickly built along both sides of the creek the length of the town.
This levee was built along our fence. You can see the edge of the garden on the left.
Shirl has a rest after helping lay that line of sandbags in front of our house. For us the danger is past & our town did not experience any damage. Our thoughts go to the many people who have not been so lucky. It is so surreal to think that we have had floods almost all the way up the east coast of Australia.
