Devastated couple’s pets killed and house washed away in floods on wedding day

A couple have been left homeless after their home washed away on their wedding day.

Their cottage was destroyed in a flood in Mondrook in New South Wales, Australia which also killed their pets.

The rented home was lifted from its foundations by surging flood waters, before it washed down the river.

Lyle Edge named the couple as his brother Joshua and fiancée Sarah.

He said they lost their “entire home” from the extreme weather on the day they should have been getting married.

A GoFundMe page has been launched to raise money for the stricken pair, which so far has received more than $38,389 (£20,000) in donations.

Mr Edge wrote: “On 20 March our brother Joshua and his fiancée Sarah lost everything they owned to the flood waters in Mondrook NSW on the mid north coast.

“What was suppose to be their wedding day ended up with them losing the house they were renting and everything they have work hard for and sadly losing their pets as well.

“We are trying to raise money to help them start again, anything would be much appreciated.”

Officials in Australia have warned residents of “life threatening” flash floods.

The floods left trees submerged in rising waters.

According to reports, the river swelled to the highest levels the area has seen in 40 years.

The Bureau of Meteorology warned of "major flooding" and issued an evacuation order for residents.

It tweeted: “Flood waters in Port Macquarie are creating hazards for locals as large parts of NSW continue to be impacted by heavy rainfall.”

Flood warnings have been put in place across western Sydney.

WaterNSW warned dams around Sydney could overflow over the weekend.

Up to 4inches of rain is forecast, with as much as 11inches set for the west of the province.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison wrote on Facebook: “The federal government stands ready to provide whatever assistance is needed, including from the ADF.”
