October 16 Dirty creek water...in da house!

1869
Bealiba was flooded when Cochrane’s Creek broke its banks 3 feet higher than previously recorded with many crops, thousands of tons of mine tailings, and fencing washed away with many houses filled with creek water, with similar destruction across the district at Bet Bet, Dunolly, Eddington and Burnt Creek.
