Re: Queensland floods continue - Getting worse - Check out the video
I just got back home to Sydney after a week in Hervey Bay looking for a house to rent. I made it to Marybrough but the bridge was under water. The local publican (who's pub I seen on the news now underwater :( ) directed me to another way south. Thankyou mister publican.
Got to Gympie and was unable to go any further. Made phone calls to find out if there was another way around and eventually after 5 hours got some info from the police about a way around the flood and made it the rest of the way home with no drama. Hope you are all ok up there. Im waiting on the Mary river to recede so I can move my family up to Hervey Bay. Hopefully we can get through next week.

Re: Queensland floods continue - Getting worse - Check out the video
In Gympie, police say about 65 businesses and 50 homes are at risk of flooding from the rising Mary River.

It is expected to peak at about 20 metres overnight.

The general manager of Gympie's Royal Hotel, Jason Williams, says residents are bracing for a flood like the one in February 1999 - when it reached 21.95 metres and inundated 150 businesses and 20 homes.

"The flood of '99 was 21.95 I believe, which is to the awning of our hotel ... few metres yet to get there, but she's creeping up," he said.



its strated heading south as well

Residents in Darkwood and Upper Thora have been isolated since 7:00am (AEDT), and a further 200 millimetres of rain is expected within the next 36 hours as the risk of major flooding increases on the north coast.

Already about 500 people have been cut off by floodwaters from the Bellinger River near Thora, and around 200 people in the village of Urbenville are now also isolated.

wooot - that brings back memories!!

In the late 1970s I lived near Darkwood, Upper Thora, past the 3rd bridge, which went underwater every major flood. I remember being cut off for 3 days in 1977 due to flooding caused by a cyclone off Queensland!

the narrow valley there means local flash flooding can become common in wet seasons.

It's no only you Aussies that are experiencing this kind of problems.

Sri Lanka -
Batticaloa district recorded the highest rainfall of 312 mm during the weekend, according to Meteorological Department.

Thousands of people have been affected by flooding in Thailand’s southern provinces following six days of torrential rains, local media report.

Thousands evacuated because of Malaysian floods; three dead

In Brazil. more than 100 thousand are displaced, 35 deaths, many missing, as 60 cities in 4 states are submerged after nonstop rain since New Year's Day.

This is becoming very normal these days, folks! hiding
And it's only the begining! damned

God hates Kangaroos!
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Re: Queensland floods continue - Getting worse - Check out the video
People who live and work along the Brisbane River are also being warned to brace for flooding, as the capital city begins to feel the effects of the big wet.

Authorities fear the swollen river could flood more than 200 homes and businesses as early as Wednesday, and again next Friday.

Heavy rain has already caused some localised flooding in low-lying parts of the city.

Lord Mayor Campbell Newman says the Wivenhoe Dam is the only thing sparing the city from a flood like that of 1974.

"Wivenhoe Dam is actually protecting Brisbane right now and in the coming days from a flood right up there with '74," he said.

Emergency services have been sand-bagging homes in low-lying areas and are worried a big rain cell off the coast could dump more rain on Ipswich tonight.

Premier Anna Bligh says the two major hotspots now in the south-east are Ipswich and Brisbane.
