The Pasha storm which hit Newcastle a year ago this weekend was one of the biggest news story since the earthquake back in 1989.It is raining again in Newcastle and minor flooding has already started. At least this time there will be no Pasha riding the waves. Although I was not there that weekend all my family suffered at the hands of the storm.. Darrel had no power for a week,,Garys roof leak though onto Summars bed and trashed it,,Debra was safe but didn't get time to do food shopping and Coles at Wallsend was washed away and Ashley well she had the best time, she and her friend Ashley went to Glendale to see a movie and were trapped which meant she couldn't get out of the pictures so it was free coffees and movies all night untill a boat came and picked them so they could go home.The next day was so unreal houses and shops even towns were washed away.I have been in 3 country floods in Wee Waa and twice we lost everything like animals,trucks,cars,furniture but when you see a whole street like Wallsend under water it takes time for it to sink in.Even Warners Bay was hit hard with the high tide ending up on the road..
Lets keep fingers crossed that Newcastle and all its folk will be safe from too much water this weekend.
