Some pics from my walk this morning...
the caravan park is under water
and the permanent caravans have been evacuated to higher ground
the bridge I usually walk over
and the pontoon that is anchored to the edge of the riverbank
taken from the bridge at the spillway...the trees normally stand in the parkland, not in the river!
not so good for these houses
or for the residents who live down this road as it is the only way in and out
my walk track, that is either side of the river, is completely submerged!
This afternoon when I walked, the water was even higher but I did not have my camera with me. Although the rain has eased the river will probably continue to rise as the water flows down from the mountains. Some of the locals said they have never seen it this high.
We did need rain, as the dam levels were seriously low, but perhaps not as much, all in one go!!
Keep safe and dry those of you who are in flood areas!
