Flooding in the North

I travelled down to Giru yesterday to cover flooding in the area. This tow truck driver had a big job on his hands attached his chain to a stranded vehicle just off the road at the A.I.M.S turnoff. Along with a crew from Channel 9 we made our way into Giru via helicopter, the only means of transport that would get us there. The tiny township was seruisly flooded but, like always, they took it in their stride as it is nearly an annual occurrence.
