Neighbouring La Maison cafe ownerWassim Saliba alerted the SES and a team of volunteers went to work filling hundreds of sandbags.

Ms Pyle, whose parents Heather and Tom Pyle travelled from Berrigan to assist, was buoyed by the help.

Rallying around: Volunteers pack sandbags to secure Gateway Island businesses from rising water. More than 1000 were formed and added to barriers installed on Sunday night.

“It’s huge – there’s lots of Musi families and old Musi families that have come and helped and friends of Gateway Village,” Ms Pyle said.

Mr Saliba has had a pump forcing water from his pantry cellar, which would otherwise bedrowned.

When a cardamon seed lodged in the pump and stopped itfor 10 minutes there was a 7.6-centimetrerise in water.

“The council and SES are trying to keep us dry which is great,” he said.

“We would be under water if all that work hadn’t been done.”
