Federal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks MP, addressed the state parliament on Wednesday, May 13 in relation to the recent storms on the Central Coast.
“I woke on the morning of Tuesday, April 21 at about seven o’clock — when suddenly I heard a sound I do not think I will ever forget,” Ms Wicks said.
“We saw a massive 60 metre blackbutt tree crash through our lounge room onto our car,” she said.
“If it had been an hour later, there would have been two kids and one adult who may not have survived that accident.”
Ms Wicks thanked the SES, Ausgrid, media and other services, and told more stories about how the community in her Robertson electorate recovered.
“I have to say that the biggest thanks of all goes to our incredible community who pulled together and showed the true heartbeat of the Central Coast.
“At a time when we looked our worst, certainly on the ground, I am proud to say that we really showcased the best of who we are as a community.”
