"Heavy rains on Saturday make the Bog Walk Gorge impassable as the Rio Cobre River over-runs its banks with water up to five feet in some area. Picture one shows a Public Works Department tractor assisting a Land Rover through the waters yesterday."
"2. Adina Bruff of Highland Drive uses a rake stick to test the depth of the water in the gully which runs in the back of her yard. Water overflowed the gully bank and went for her house to damage furniture and other personal effects."
