Record Id: 43215401 (Australian Library Collections) permalink Title: 1233 ABC Newcastle presents a June to remember [videorecording] Also Titled: June to remember Published: Newcastle, N.S.W. : 1233 ABC Newcastle,  Description: 1 videodisc (DVD) (ca. 48 mins.) : sd., col. ; 4 3/4 in. Summary: In the lead up to the June long weekend in 2007, most people in Newcastle were looking forward to a few days off work. What eventuated was far from a relaxing long weekend. On the June long weekend in 2007 two low pressure cells brought gale force winds that battered Newcastle and caused fatal flash flooding. Massive seas and cyclonic winds pushed the coal freighter Pasha Bulker aground on Nobbys Beach while the region was left stunned by widespread storm damage worth an estimated billion dollars. Nine people died and hundreds of people were forced out of their homes because of flooding and storm damage. For three days, 1233 continued an around-the-clock emergency broadcast. This coverage was only possible thanks to dedicated staff and passionate listeners. This is the story of the June long weekend storm. The voices are yours and the images are the ones you shared with us.
