1902 - FLOOD - During the past ten days the Murrumbidgee River at Gundagai has been in a very muddy state, and rose about a foot, which is due to the phenomenal fall of rain in the Adjinbilly Valley. Starting about 20 miles east of Gundagai the water came down in a volume of 8ft to 10ft. deep, and over 100 yards wide, sweeping everything before it.- (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Wednesday 3 December 1902).

1902 - FLOOD - GUNDAGAI, Monday. - The storm which passed over the Gundugui district on Saturday afternoon was the heaviest known. At Yarrangobilly, 8 miles cast of Gundagai, it is estimated that 5 or 6 inches fell there in about an hour. The rush of water was extraordinarily, large logs were washed down the sides of the hills and earned for miles, and fences were washed away in all directions. A few miles further on in the direction of Adjunbilly, on the Gobarralong Road, the water came down 22ft deep at a place known as Dry Creek. North-west of Gundagai heavy rain also fell, but at Coolac, 10 miles north, very little was recorded. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 9 December 1902).
