Queensland Floods!

I have sat in front of the TV today, in absolute awe at the ferosity of the floods in Queensland. As of today, 9 people have lost their lives, and 59 people are still missing. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost family, friends, their homes and their livelihoods.

This video shows just a little of the devastation in Toowoomba.


My brother lives in Brisbane, right near the river, and is currently on evacuation watch. They are expecting the river to reach over 6 metres in the next 24hours, and over 9000 homes to be flood damaged. I hope he stays safe.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this incredible natural disaster.
