This is the second flood they have experienced in two consecutive years. Their heritage listed home was completely inundated and practically everything inside was damaged. Just after the last flood in 2021, Megan, an accountant by trade, stopped working to spend the last 12 months cleaning up. Now they will have to start recovery again, living in a camper van parked on their car port, without any insurance.Directly in front of his home, Trevor runs a hobby turf farm, recently inundated by flood waters, he is waiting for it to dry in order to assess the full scale of the damage.Locations:Australia-New South Wales-OceaniaDate:19 Mar, 2022Credit:© Isabella Moore / GreenpeaceMaximum size:6000px X 4000pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Day-Houses-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Portraits-Two people-VictimsShoot:Flood Impacts in Western Sydney, AustraliaIn late February and March 2022, intense rainfall and floods affected millions of residents in Queensland and New South Wales, causing devastating loss of life and an estimated AUD$5billion worth of damage. For communities in North Western Sydney, this was the second major flooding event in two years. The compounding effect of disaster after disaster takes a heavy economic and emotional toll on communities. This trend will continue in coming years as the frequency and intensity of climate disasters increase.Photographer Isabella Moore visited this area to capture the impact of floods for Greenpeace Australia Pacific in March 2021. Isabella returned again in March 2022 to hear about people's experienced of these back-to-back flooding events.
