FLOODS

So now I'm starting to worry. The flood waters are heading our way. And while I think we will be ok up here on our hill, it's going to be pretty darn close. Just two days ago a freak tsunami like inland wall of water hit a town up the range from us. 8 people died and 72 are missing. It demolished everything in its path. Our river is expected to peek over 16 meters (over 52 feet) This is getting out of hand, almost the whole of Queensland is now under water. People have died, people are missing, entire towns are under water, and thousands are homeless! When will this rain end?

  8. Thanks everyone. I'm sorry I dont have the time to answer everyone separatly. They have revised the river peek and now think it's going to go as high as 22 meters. Its 2 meters higher than the 1974 floods. THe man next door said it didnt get up to our house back then, so heres hoping. Because 2 meters makes alot of difference. I'll keep you updated when I can.
    Love to all.

  10. Toowoombah and Burpengary were both flood recently, just before it got bad in Brisbane.

    I have relatives in Deception Bay,north of Brisbane and I've heard that so far they are OK.

    Good luck!

    I hope your hill becomes a mountain for you!
