ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Extraordinary rescue efforts following flood emergency across Port Macquarie | 7.30” – below is their description.

The mid-North Coast of New South Wales has endured six days in a row of relentless rain and flooding. Extraordinary rescue efforts were undertaken to get people from low lying parts of Port Macquarie to higher ground.

And as Nick Hose reports, local businesses are only just starting to realise the damage done by this once-in-a-century disaster with the insurance costs estimated to be in the billions.
