One year after: Greenvale residents don’t feel safe

One year after the floods of October 19th 2018, Greenvale resident Denish Lachan recounted the terrifying experience of the night of the flood in Greenvale and the fact that he still has nightmares and any rain or bad weather sends many families in Greenvale into a panic about their safety.

He said he and his family also lost hundreds of thousand of dollars worth of items and a vehicle which was completely submerged by the floodwaters and would also prefer to be relocated or at least get a sense of what safety or evacuation mechanisms are in place for residents. He said his family simply does not feel safe in the area after what happened.
