Flood waters invade small community - Warmun
Flood waters invade small community
Built on each side of Turkey Creek, the village of 67 houses was devastated by a huge flood the like of which had never been seen before. Only 20 houses remain – none of them habitable.
Meanwhile, Warmun Retreat Centre staff, Alasdair and Janyne Brand and Joan McPherson, ably assisted by Joan Burfitt and Tim Bussemaker, are still cleaning up. Together with Pat Clifford and the School Principal, Leanne Hodge, and her staff and the Josephite Sisters - these are among the unsung heroes of the great flood of Warmun.
