Queensland Floods

| | Comments (0)
I've had only a detached interest in the Queensland floods.  Devastating, yes, but somehow not personal.  

Until it hit Brisbane and places I've been to.  Watched coverage for several hours tonight.  Sad sad sad.  Stu was pretty sad tonight too.  He having lived in Brisbane for so long and all..

The only people I know in Queensland are ok, although not far from the devastation in Goodna.

Photos from the Sydney Morning Herald and the Courier Mail.

David described scenes like this as like the end of the world..

One of the images that really struck me though was from a couple of days ago in another part of Queensland.

This page is pretty freaky too.  Someone's done an overlay of the Brisbane River and the extent of the possible flooding..

So yeah.  Stay safe everyone...
