1952 - Bridge Down, Houses Awash; Tumut Flood - SYDNEY, Friday.

Swollen by rain and snow falls in the Alps, the surging Tumut River to-night carried away a bridge, and poured through low-lying homes near Tumut.

The river washed away a timber bridge across the Monaro highway at Yellowin, 10 miles up stream from Tumut. Two other bridges are threatened.

The river has broken its banks and is running through some homes in low-lying Blowering, near Tumut. All roads from Tumut are blocked, but there are no reports of stock losses .

The Weather Bureau to night issued a flood warning for the Murrumbidgee River. The river is already swollen, and the Bureau has predicted further moderate rain on the headwaters. - (Ref- The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926-1954) Saturday 7 June 1952).
