Local captures end result of heavy rain

By Brayden May

HEATHCOTE was hit by wild weather at the weekend, with more than 80mm of rain falling.

Local resident George Dimech captured scenes in the aftermath, sharing images of Redesdale Bridge he took in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The pictures attracted plenty of attention in the Heathcote Town Crier Facebook group.

“Good to see water back in the creek, and hopefully going into (Lake) Eppalock, we have had nearly 82mm at Mia Mia,” one person commented.

While another said: "I went over the bridge at about 12:30, myself and another man tried to clear it, it was covered in rocks and logs we chucked over the side, pure craziness.”

“Nice photo for whatever crazy hour of the morning that page came through,” another person said.
