Couple suffer flooding for third time

NARELLE Clark and Darryl Tynan Snr have been through three other floods in Queensland and say it doesn't get any easier.

Narelle and Darryl watched their East Bundaberg home completely destroyed by rosining flood waters yesterday and were surprised by the speed and ferocity of the flood.

"We were fine on Saturday," she said.

"Then this morning (Sunday) our landlord came by and said we had to move."

Fighting through tears, Ms Clark said she was dismayed to see her blue house go under.

"We've lost everything," she said.

"I'm just  glad we got my dog, Bobby, to the RSPCA."

Mr Tynan Snr said they had only a moment's notice before trying to salvage what they could.

"We just grabbed our photos and a few other valuables," he said.

"It was just too fast."

Mr Tynan Snr said unlike the Rockhampton floods they did not have family they could stay with, so he was not sure what they would do next.

"Don't know," he said, blinking away tears.

"But at least we have got each other."

Narelle and Darryl have watched their East Bundaberg home fall victim to flooding once again.
