The Far North has seen a large amount of rain dropped in the last few days and we all know the saying ‘If it’s flooded, forget it’.
That saying is there for a very good reason, sometimes we can’t see what is happening under the water.
The driver of this vehicle was very fortunately that he was not washed away when his vehicle got stuck at about 5:45am yesterday morning during low light and fog.
The causeway at James Creek on Wolfram Road, Dimbulah, which was most likely washed away during the early hours of yesterday morning after parts of Dimbulah received over 200ml.
The two occupants were not injured and a crane was brought in and lifted the utility away from the edge.
So that residents were not isolated, Mareeba Shire Council, yesterday afternoon created a river pass slightly up stream for 4WD’s.
Remember – ‘If it’s flooded, forget it!’
