Australia:

Penrith floods 'worst in 15 years'

FLASH floods hit Penrith, Cranebrook and Londonderry the worst, Penrith SES spokesman Sam Peake said.

‘‘On Thursday the water was still rising at Londonderry because it’s so flat,’’ Mr Peake said.

‘‘We had three boats in Londonderry’s Torkington Road, taking people from their homes, surrounded by flood water, which was rising.

‘‘It’s pretty rare to see something like that.’’

He said Penrith SES was helped by teams from Blacktown, Parramatta, Mount Druitt, Katoomba and even from as far away as Gosford.

SES volunteer, Michael Faccin of Cranebrook, was on duty from 7.30pm last Thursday to 5am the next morning.

He is a trained swift water rescue technician and spent most of his time rescuing stranded motorists in Cranebrook and marooned residents in Londonderry.

‘‘I’ve lived in Cranebrook all my life and it was the worst I’ve seen,’’ the 20-year-old Mr Faccin said.

‘‘Quite a few vehicles were trapped in flood water on Cranebrook Road.’’

He said some of the motorists had tried to drive through the rising water, but fortunately were rescued.

‘‘About eight houses in Torkington Road, Londonderry had to be evacuated,’’ Mr Faccin said.

‘‘We had two boats which had to rescue a lot of dogs; all the animals were saved.’’

Mr Peake said the clean-up on Friday showed how much damage had been done.

‘‘The water was about a metre high and people had no time take a lot of valuables to higher ground,’’ he said.

‘‘People had to rip their carpets up and a lot of machinery was destroyed.

‘‘Fortunately, we had no reports of anyone being injured.’’

Mr Faccin said older volunteers told him that they could not remember floods around Penrith being this bad for at least 15 years.

He praised other SES teams for helping out and also thanked the police and the Rural Fire Service for their support.

He also said it was emergencies like that which made the SES so vital.

‘‘We need a lot more people, young people in particular, to join the SES,’’ Mr Faccin said.

‘‘I’ve found that you learn a lot of skills that you won’t learn outside the organisation.

‘‘You meet a lot of good people too.’’

Floods lash Picton's town centre

The Picton community worked hard to manage damage caused throughout the town due to floodwaters.

THE centre of Picton looked more like a river on Friday evening as a flash flood swept through the business precinct.

More than 30mm of rain and hail hit the town about 5.30pm, with the drainage system failing to cope with the deluge.

Det-Chief-Insp Andy Richmond said officers were called to Argyle St, Picton, at about 5.30pm with reports of flash flooding.

“The drainage system wasn’t able to cope with the amount of rain dumped over Picton in that 30-minute period and the streets became flooded,” he said.

“The police were making sure no one was at risk in the actual areas affected and were keeping people out of those areas.”

Zane Crawn’s business Country Indulgence was one of the premises worst hit, with around 150-200mm of water inundating her store, causing damage estimated at $40,000.

“As the traffic was coming through it was creating big waves like a boat on the water,” she said.

“I think the stormwater drains must have been blocked or just couldn’t take it and the traffic was making it worse. We were trying to push it back with all our brooms and then all of a sudden in came in like a tsunami. My furniture was damaged, I had shoes and handbags floating away.”

Wollondilly state Liberal MP Jai Rowell was almost swept away in his car by the rising waters. “It was scary at the time,” he said.

“It came so quickly, it wasn’t something you could prepare for. It rose so quickly, but all the shopkeepers and everyone came out to help each other - it was good to see that community spirit.”

The clean-up is well under way.

Former Picton Chamber of Commerce president Karl Klein was shocked to see flooding happen in his town.

“Since 1988, when we moved here, I haven’t seen anything like that at all,” he said. “I have heard stories about this happening in the ‘70s and ‘60s but to get flash flooding like that was absolutely crazy.”

Wollondilly Mayor Col Mitchell said he felt for the businesses affected by the flood water, but he was happy to see how well the clean-up had gone.

He particularly wished to thanks the volunteers, State Emergency Service and Rural Fire Service for their hard work.

Wollondilly State Emergency Service acting local controller Phil Murray said all eight crews, which had been placed on standby ahead of weather warnings, attended to the rising waters in Picton on Friday afternoon.

Mr Murray said the State Emergency Service responded to 34 jobs in the region, including three rescue jobs.

“No one was injured and all people were accounted for in the end.”

He particularly wished to thank all the volunteers for their efforts and quick action and commended the residents for the behaviour.

Wollondilly Council general manager Les McMahon also thanked the emergency crews, councillors and community for pitching in with the repair job.

“It was just the sheer volume of rain that fell that caused the issues, and no pipeline or pit would have been able to handle this amount of water,” he said.

“The amount of water that fell in such a short period was astonishing.”

The council is currently preparing for repairs to areas damaged during the event and is reviewing the flood to improve protection for the future.

The council claims preliminary analysis indicates parts of Picton experienced flooding greater than a 100 year event.

Moderate flooding also continues further north at Mungindi.

SES spokesman Dave Owens says floodwaters continue to be monitored as they rush downstream from Queensland, with townships further south from the current problem areas also likely to become isolated.

Mr Owens says the water is likely to continue causing problems until at least the middle of March.

Philippines:

Floods submerge 2 GenSan villages

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines – Hundreds of houses in two villages here were submerged in floodwaters as another major waterway swelled anew over the weekend due to heavy rains.

Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio said significant portions of Barangays Lagao and Baluan here remained flooded due to the impounding of huge volumes of floodwaters from the nearby Kalaja River.

Citing initial assessment, she said the floods already affected 630 families that were situated in low-lying areas in the areas.

“The floodwaters reached waist-deep in some areas but there has been no evacuation as the affected residents decided to just remain in their areas,” the mayor said.

Custodio said the floodwaters from Kalaja River started to swell towards the area on Sunday following almost 10 hours of heavy rains as triggered by a passing Low Pressure Area.

She said the river’s waters, which drains towards the Buayan Creek and end up in the Sarangani Bay, failed to follow its normal course due to clogged portions of the waterways.

The mayor said she has dispatched personnel from city’s social welfare, agriculture, veterinary and engineering offices to assess the damage wrought by the floods, especially on properties and agricultural crops.

Custodio said the city government currently studies the possibility of restoring the closed portions of the original outlet of Kalaja River to end the perennial flooding in the area.

She said the river’s normal flow towards its outlet had been altered these past years due to developments within the private properties.

Some property owners reportedly closed down portions of the river’s natural waterway to give way to some land developments, she said.

The mayor said the local government would also seek the removal from private ownership of lands covered by the river’s original waterway noting that they should not be covered by land titles.

“We really have no choice but to free up the closed portions of the river’s natural waterway or the flooding will only worsen,” Custodio added. (PNA)

Bridges collapses in Indonesia for the last month

And look what the Indonesian establishment are doing:

Jakarta to Start Clearing the Ciliwung of  Squatters

 

Jakarta authorities are planning to relocate more than a thousand families from along the Ciliwung River in a first step toward clearing the length of the waterway.

The Ciliwung is hemmed in on both sides by squatter settlements, narrowing the river and contributing to flooding in the city.

Governor Fauzi Bowo said the families to be relocated were in the Bukit Duri and Kampung Melayu areas, which are particularly crowded stretches of the river.

He said a total of 1,183 buildings along the riverbanks would be torn down in the area and that the river would be widened to 50 meters. He did not say what the current width was.

The families will be relocated to a settlement that is being built in East Jakarta. Fauzi said the families would receive compensation for their land and buildings, and added that authorities were working on programs that would help the squatters find jobs.

He said before the families were moved, they would be registered and data would be collected on the status of the land, the physical condition of the homes and the number of residents.

“We hope to finish registering the residents who are to be relocated to a more appropriate site in six months,” Fauzi said.

“We will also help build public facilities for people affected by the project at the location of the new settlement,” he added.

The coordinating minister for people’s welfare, Agung Laksono, said he was optimistic that the relocations, the first of several that are planned, would be completed by 2014.

“We hope that this can commence this year so that by 2014 the relocation of residents from this part of the river can be completed. This is a part of our efforts to reduce poverty,” he said.

An estimated 10,000 people, he said, would eventually be relocated to a 20-hectare plot of land in Matraman, East Jakarta.

“We hope the preparations will take six months, so that there won’t be any problems later, including during the process of transferring assets,” Agung said.

After this group is successfully relocated, the hope is that the program can be duplicated for residents along the entire length of the Ciliwung, he added.
