They said that when our little town flooded in September last year that it was a 1 in a hundred year event..... Well someone didnt tell that to the 'powers that be', because, our town has flooded again for the second time in 4 months.... Our friends have lost their homes, and their businesses, and the peak of the flood wont even hit till tomorrow. They are predicting that it will hit its peak by tomorrow afternoon ( Saturday) These photos were taken this morning ( Friday) .
This is the main street, all the shops have about a meter of water inside them.....
and the main street again
a view from the other end of the street
the little foot bridge has been washed away, and the big bridge now has water over it !!!! This is devastating for our town, but, as hard as it is, it is nothing compared to what is happening in Queensland at the moment.
We are isolated here at the moment, all the roads are cut off.... But we are safe, we are on a big hill, and are in no danger at all.
Thanks for calling in, and take care those of you who are battling floods yourselves....
