‘Everyone’s evacuating. It’s horrendous’: Traralgon residents brace for second flood
As news of the evacuation order filtered through, one woman said she was not sure what to do.
“At this point with the stress of getting out and everything I feel like I could just stay,” she said. “I could be sorry later.”
Scott Lever, who also lives near the creek, said he was confident the flood waters would not intrude into his house.
“I’ll hang around just to make sure the furniture is safe,” he said. “It would have to be really catastrophic if it was endangering here.”
Mr Lever’s house avoided flooding on Thursday even though the water rose up to the bonnet of his car, which was sitting in the front yard.
He said many of his neighbours felt tense after the flood waters swept through the streets this week.
“I think most people will take off.”
