UPDATE: A scathing report into the catastrophic NSW floods has found state emergency agencies failed to provide leadership, created confusion and responded poorly during the crisis. Earlier this year, Lismore residents revealed to #60Mins how calls to evacuate came far too late.

More than five months after the floods in Northern NSW, residents of Lismore are anxiously awaiting details of a government buy-back scheme designed to encourage them to move out of danger. But for many, choosing to stay or go is anything but straightforward. #TheProjectTV
'It’s an absolute joke': Locals in Lismore have reacted to the arrival of Prime Minister Scott Morrison to their flood-hit suburbs. Some say his arrival is 'too late'. Others want to see government action.
In regards to the flood response, @latingle asks @PeterDutton_MP : "How should voters in Queensland feel about the fact that they are receiving $350 a week less in income support than people in Lismore?" #abc730
Lismore residents have dumped flood-damaged items outside Kirribilli House in a demonstration targeted at the prime minister after he 'refused to speak to the community'. They say flood relief funding is not enough and want serious action on climate change.
Morrison doesn’t want media filming him in Lismore because they’ll catch him trying to force a handshake with someone he’s abandoned. But the damage is already done. Let this be a nail in the coffin for a PM who’s more concerned about his image than the safety of communities.
The incredible people of Lismore, and all our devastated Northern Rivers communities have pulled together through a catastrophic disaster. But they need action from Govt now. They’re exhausted, at breaking point and it’s taking too long to get the necessary assistance.
