ACT Waterwatch says:

Looking at the picture clearly there has been a major event here. Large pieces of debris have been moved. This indicates a large and fast movement of water through this channel. Note the undermined roots of trees in the central top portion of the picture. Everything here indicates too much water moving too quickly and doing massive damage.
