PHOTOS: Footage from CCTV shows flooding in Lismore bank
NATIONAL Australia Bank's flood damaged Lismore branch on Molesworth St may not reopen for months.
The 90cm of water that penetrated the branch destroyed the ATM, which was completely submerged, and structurally damaged the building's concrete slab.
Teller counters, joinery, plus floor coverings and furniture were all destroyed.
Still images of CCTV footage provided by the bank illustrate some of the damage.
In response the bank has stripped the building back to its bones and cleaned it extensively, an operation which is still ongoing.
It is monitoring air quality in the building to make sure it is safe and has brought in structural engineers to assess the damage.
Regional NSW head of retail Jackie Connors said while the branch was being refurbished the Lismore team was operating out of its pop-up branch in the Browns Creek Car Park.
"We have a lot of work still to do to make sure the branch is safe for our customers and staff,” she said.
