Victoria Floods 5th Feb 2011

Check out these amazing photos I took around the Berwick / Beaconsfield areas during the recent Victoria flash flooding crisis. Within 10 minutes of heavy downpour, surrounding areas already started to flood and the next day, many places were still affected and roads were blocked.

This photo below shows a Beaconsfield teenager being rescued by SES and CFA team. I found it a bit annoying that so many rescue trucks and resources were not being utilised elsewhere... all because some teenagers decided to "have a bit of fun" in the water.
