Stories of Resilience

In May 2018, a severe storm caused flooding in and around Hobart, Tasmania.

There was enough damage to declare it a disaster.

Affected community members from Hobart, Kingborough, Glenorchy,
and Derwent Valley municipalities were invited to share their experience
of the flood nearly twelve months later. Their stories have been recorded for
posterity and to assist with future preparedness and recovery efforts.
