Lake Conjola's volunteer recovery unit have waded through waist-deep water to ensure supplies for bushfire-affected victims are safe.
Lake Conjola recovery centre coordinator Peter Dunn said the team saved all the items from the risk of damage, posed by the rising flood water which broke the banks in the early hours of Monday, February 10.
"We have had to push stuff up off the floor in some of our areas," he said, while wading through water to speak with affected residents.
"We've got material that is needed and given to families. That's been moved, that's all in good shape as long as we don't get too much more [rain] then we should be right."
Mr Dunn said water was all around his house, but they were safe.
He reiterated his calls for a bipartisan approach to managing man-made climate change at state and federal government levels.
"This intense low that has formed is something that is really serious off the east coast, not just Conjola, but there are plenty of areas that are affected. State governments and federal government need to look very carefully at the coastal management arrangements they have not only for bushfires, but for floods as well," he said.
"We should not be surprised, as disappointed as we are. If we keep burning fossil fuels we're going to keep changing the climate at a huge rate. We've got to get that back to a normal rate of change.
"Frankly I see this as a wake-up call for all of our politicians to stop worrying about losing this seat here, that seat here, the national interest and global interest is to do something about changes to the climate."
