Were you affected by the Christmas day floods?

Were you affected by the Christmas day floods in the Shire of Nillumbik? Yarra Plenty Regional Library would like to record and preserve your photos and personal stories on our Wikinorthia: documenting life inMelbourne’s north website.

Flood waters severely impacted some residents late in the afternoon in Eltham and Research in particular with severe hail stones also being reported in the area. Roads, drains, cars, homes and fences were in some cases destroyed by the torrent of water caused by the storm, with many long term residents claiming they had never seen anything like it.
