Evacuated families return home to assess the damage from WA’s flooding disaster ABC News.


The mud line on the window the aftermath of the flooding in Fitzroy Crossing oh man it brings it here tomorrow every time I come walking through you know mud debris and displaced residents wondering if and when it’ll be safe to return home so I reckon I’m I’m about eight eight to nine nine nine and ten.

Months away I’m getting back home Keith Andrews lives on the outskirts of town on the other side of what was the main bridge over the Fitzroy River his home was inundated in the floods and he’s lost everything my living area like like muddler that dick and I actually stepped over my big flat flat screen TV I was looking for it but then it was.

Under right under the water yeah hundreds of people have been evacuated from Fitzroy Crossing and remote communities Kathy ninjala and her family have been taking refuge in the town of Derby but will be among the first evacuees to head home I’d like to thank every supporter that.

Has supported us through this sad time you know through this crisis awaiting those who return is a long road ahead of cleanup and repairs while this smaller Bridge remains structurally sound further down this road the Fitzroy River Bridge is significantly damaged but plans to bring in specialist divers to inspect its foundations have been.

Scrapped because there’s too much risk of debris and possibly crocodiles in these waterways instead main roads will use drones and should soon know how long the town face is being cut off meanwhile a barge delivered tons of food to replenish dwindling supplies flown throughout the region
