After a few days, they brought in a small pump to drain the water away. All manner of water birds had arrived in the meantime and slowly departed as their new pond disappeared.
We went for lunch in the Swan Valley to see the devastation of some of the vineyards nearest to the river. The river had burst its banks in many places but I couldn't get a good photo from the car.
