TONY Fusti has never seen so much rain fall in in Echuca in one night during the 51 years he has lived here.

So he took his camera to the some of the worst-affected areas in town on Saturday to capture the flooding which affected at least 60 homes and businesses.

‘‘We got 150mm in the rain gauge at Northern Constructions Group in Mundarra Rd,’’ he said. ‘‘The Powercor depot looked completely underwater. Apparently it didn’t get inside the building but water was all through the yard.’’

He also snapped the flooded Mundarra Rd as well as Parkview Estate in McSwains Rd, including its overflowing retarding basin, and Murray Gardens Estate retarding basin.
