Floods in Queensland - Australia - ...................a
Sunday, January 27, 2013
For those of you interested in the situation here these photos show the extent of the problem - and the latest news is that the rivers in Bundaberg, Maryborough and Brisbane area will peek tomorrow - so the worse is yet to come
Estimates are that it will be worse than 2011 - and I am sure you remember that that was devastating!!
Its a gallery of pictures - there are about 100 pictures and more are added as they come in
The waether system has gone south and is now causing trouble in Northern New South Wales - and will continue to cause havoc right down to Sydney over the next day or so, from what has been forecast!!
Myself - we are fine here - we are away a bit from both coast and rivers - we could be cut off for a few days but we have a stocked pantry - we came through the wind and rain, frightened but ok - the house stood up well and though we have palm fronds and a couple of branches down we had no damage -
We are the lucky ones.
My main problem is that the main telephone system is affected and both our phone, mobile phone and internet are erratic - but that's a small price to pay!!
