Natural disasters are common in rural Australia, but there is something particularly devastating about floods. They sweep through towns and communities often without warning, and leave people to pick up the pieces. And unlike bushfires, there is no way for people to take measures to deter the ferocity of a flood. On July 6th 2022, a flood swept through Broke and the Hunter Valley in NSW, Australia and disrupted over 300 community members. It had been 70 years since a flood so dangerous and overwhelming had hit the town and they are still reeling from the effects today. Join John Milham as he talks to the Broke and Singleton Community each week and shares with us the trauma and adversity felt during the flood and how the strength and compassion of community in regional NSW has kept this town resilient and steadfast in the wake of trauma, anxiety and destruction.
