  • Description

    Unseasonal floods have caused damage estimated at several million pounds (sterling) to the sugar cane crop in Australia's New South Wales. And more than two-thousand people living near the lower Richmond River area had their homes and property damaged. Helicopters and boats were used to take essential supplies and cattle fodder to isolated farms near Lismore. The floods came after 14 inches of rain fell over two river catchment areas in twenty-four hours. The loss of sugar cane may be the most servers in the State's history, and all the cane planted near the Tweed River has probably been ruined.
