One thought on “Myall Coast Great Lakes severe weather

  1. no problems in forster / tuncurry as they cut all the trees down a long time ago that could affect power lines. meanwhile you cant get out of some parts of Pindimar and Bundabah is cut off – AGAIN! completely and utterly.
    2015 paying nearly $2000 a year in rates per lot there is no town water or sewer or digital Tv reception or mobile phoe reception. land lines are frequently out as they are now. there could be severly injured or dead people and no one would know.
    Please LGA take us out of the culpible hands of GLC as they have no interest in this part of the region. It is beyond third world.
    One can only imagine what state the already abysmal “roads” within the village are in although no doubt Ron Hartley will get on his high horse and tell us all how wondeful we have it and how Forster is far more important. How about popping in for a photo shoot mayor and tell us all how fit for the future you are from Bundabah???????
    NSW government please intervene before people die and remove us from GLC.who are incompitent beyond belief.
