Dubbo floods hit SportsPower warehouse
There but for the grace of God and higher ground go many retailers around the country in this most unusual December weather.
Long-time retailer Anthony Barnes of Sportspower Dubbo has suffered from both the massive drought hitting trade and now this flood, which peaked at 9.7 metres on Sunday morning. His store is located in Macquarie Street .
He reports that, “we tried to get the stock out as the Macquarie River waters continued to rise.
“On Sunday morning, the river has peaked at 9.7 metres which resulted in around 2.5 metres of water in my warehouse.
“The fork lift is completely submerged, the power and lights are off for safety and it is very eerie. I don’t think I have enough sponges to clean this up!”
