Unimaginable devastation: NSW Labor leader Chris Minns in Camden

“Nothing can really prepare you for what you see and hear when you visit these communities.’’

Speaking yesterday after visiting parts of Camden that had been devastated by floodwaters, it was clear the NSW Labor leader Chris Minns was moved by what he had seen and heard from locals.

“There were parts of Camden that really did feel the full force of the floods,’’ he said.

“The stories from those I spoke to in Camden were horrific and heartbreaking.

“The devastation was clear to see,’’ said the opposition leader, pictured above, left.

Mr Minns – who was recently in the north of the state visiting flood ravaged communities – was joined by shadow minister for Western Sydney and Campbelltown MP Greg Warren MP and Camden deputy mayor Paul Farrow.

The trio visited a number of places in Camden – including the Poplar Tourist Caravan Park.

Mr Warren said the entire Macarthur community had banded together to help out their neighbours in other local government areas.

“Macarthur wasn’t immune from the destruction caused by the floods – particularly here in Camden,” he said.

“However, I have certainly been buoyed by the number of people and organisations that have been eager to help and assist those who have been impacted.

“I must make special mention of the team Lomandra Community Pantry in Leumeah who have worked tirelessly to support those in need.”

As well as Camden Mr Minns visited other parts of Western Sydney that had been significantly impacted by the recent floods.

    There were calls on the State Government on last year’s floods to lift Warragamba Dam at Penrith up to five metres and I don’t think anything has been done about it or it has been looked into that is needs to be done ,
    also on a current affairs on channel nine the was a levee at Richmond which was broken and has never been repaired.
