ouch Floods in Australia

I'm sure you may have heard already, but this forum is lacking in Australia-related news, so any excuse is a good excuse.

The floods in Queensland, Australia have been no-doubt devastating for everyone living in those areas, and anyone with relatives or close ties with the people affected. Billions of dollars worth of damage has been dealt to Queensland homes, and people are still coming to terms with what has happened.

I'm unaware of whether the floods are still present or if they have subsided, but either way, the community need support. I won't pressure you or guilt you into donating to the organisations helping these Australians, but it would be strongly appreciated.

Anyway, discuss.

Well, this thread isn't really just about asking for money, but rather just a regular discussion thread. The donation part was a sidenote.

I just find it strange that this time last year, we had a massive fire that wiped out whole suburbs. Goes to show how unpredictable Australia is.

Crazy Chocobo will become famous soon enough

Yeah it was really bad, I live in Queensland and was affected by it but we were lucky. We had a lot of water lying around our yard but I live up on a slant so my house didn't get flooded. A lot of areas around here though weren't so lucky and it was quite terrible. I got to take a load of photos around the place, it's something I don't think we'll ever witness again in this lifetime. Brisbane and areas of Ipswich are a mess and they are in the process of cleaning up which is going to take months.

Roads are damaged and dangerous but fortunately we can get through to go shopping and what not now. Milk and bread was in short supply all last week, milk still is in short supply but hopefully it'll be more than available to everybody soon. It was just crazy, I know people who have lost houses and its' very sad. I just hope their insurance companies cover everything and don't muck about.

There's a lot of work to be done but everybody is getting together and helping each other, even total strangers to try and get everything back to normal as quick as they can but it's still going to take a long time. People are just starting to go back to work now so it'll be a long journey.

I'm just grateful we got out of it alright, our town got flooded but a fair bit of it was just fine so we are all grateful of that.

Well, I can't really imagine what could come from such a natural disaster other than sheer devastion.

Anyway, this is bad news, but glad you guys were okay and relatively unaffected by the flood. What's this world coming to? Nevertheless, I'm sure the U.S. will attempt to jump to the rescue, despite that our own economy is in the crapper. But for something like this, I could see why.

Natural disasters are becoming increasingly frequent, it's scary.

No they aren't. They're just more publicized due to massive media coverage and improving warning systems/tech.

Either way, it sucks that these things happen, but they do.

Our poor, neighbouring countries like Indonesia and Papua New Guinea have sent vastly generous amounts of money and support to the victims, and it's actually quite heartwarming, considering that those countries have very little themselves.

Although I live in the state below Queensland (New South Wales), I have relatives up there that are fortunate enough to have been living on a large hill at the time and were relatively unaffected. My brother, however, was there for a holiday and was trapped in a petrol station for around a day and a half.
