Pastor Ryan Heard from the NSW town of Forbes joined Breakfast duo Ally and Brendan this morning to discuss the devastation of the flooding their town is currently experiencing.

“It’s been quite surreal here for the last couple of weeks,” Forbes Baptist Church pastor Ryan said.

“Two weeks ago, the river broke its banks here in Forbes and the height of the water reached what many of the long-time locals have said is the worst flooding in 70 years.

“Sunday night we had a downpour of about 125mm in about four hours which reinvigorated the flood waters.”
