…of flooding rains

21/04/2015

Once again my hometown of Newcastle is being battered by fierce winds and storms, in yet another ‘storm of the century’, the scene above is just around the corner from my place in the inner city suburb of Cooks Hill. We’re now into our our second day of category two cyclonic winds and rain with many parts of the city flooded, and without power. Dungog a small town to the North of us is cut off and several houses have been swept off their piers there, three deaths are reported. My 8 minute walk to work this morning was an adventure to say the least.
