Bizarre photo of NSW floods

 

Pitt Town resident Brittnee Sheath was visibly devastated as she returned to view her flooded home with Sunrise reporter Matt Doran during a live cross on Wednesday morning.

She was among the 18,000 NSW residents who have been evacuated from their homes during the past week.

'It just doesn't feel real at all. We can't believe what's happened," Ms Sheath said as she looked back at the submerged house from a boat in the Hawkesbury area with the Sunrise team.

NSW residents were urged to not be fooled by the blue skies currently seen across greater Sydney, with flooding expected to continue throughout the state.
