While the floodwaters are receding in the North, the clean up has only just begun.

More than 400mm of rain fell in the north causing widespread chaos.  

In fact, the rainfall was so ferocious, one woman died after being swept into Haruru Falls, and dozens more were evacuated from their homes.

One man who's been up to his waist in it is Labour Party MP Kelvin Davis.
