Tenterfield and Tabulam were both hit by flooding in January.
SES volunteer Bill Hoyles tells the story of the Richmond Tweed flood event of January 2011 from his own perspective.
THE sound of relentless rain was replaced by the growl of chainsaws and backhoes as Tenterfield started repairing the damage caused by the latest rain event.
THE flood threat hanging over the Northern Rivers’ main population centres has eased with comparatively little damage.
SES volunteers last night evacuated 18 people from eight homes in low-lying areas of Tabulam as the worst flood in 35 years hit the town.
A PUBLIC Information Inquiry Centre (PIIC) has been opened to take calls from the public about the flood-affected areas in northern NSW.
