Tim, Riina and Imbi’s new lives in Lismore have been totally devastated by these unprecedented floods that have inundated northern NSW. This is their first home that they moved into only seven months ago, which was to be the start of a new life. They understood the possible risks of living in Lismore, but the house they purchased was built 100 years ago and had survived floods before, the highest of these having reached the floor level of the elevated Queenslander style weatherboard house. But this flood, like nothing Lismore has ever seen before, has submerged the house (along with thousands of others) up to the roof.
