Floods in Queensland

Rhian Cahill said it all in her post over at International Heat.

Rather than writing a new blog, I’m taking the liberty of posting her words here:

Nature is a fickle woman. For months people in north-eastern Australia have been complaining about a lack of rain and now it seems there prayers and wishes have been answered and then some. In Queensland and New South Wales flooding is taking a toll. A big one. Whole towns have been washed away and many communities have been cut off by rising waters. Those of us in the writing community have the privilege of meeting people from all over the world and at times like these there are more than a few of us that have friends caught in the disaster. While I wait for word of a close writing friend I know many others are receiving devastating news on loved ones and friends. My heart goes out to all of them. I can only imagine the distress of not knowing and at the moment there are quite a few Aussie’s unaccounted for. The crisis isn’t over, waters are still rising. For those in Australia and around the world wanting to donate to the flood relief go here  http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html

As rain continues to fall and water levels continue to rise I hope and wish for no more lost lives. Things, cars, houses, TV’s, can all be replaced. People can’t. To everyone in the disaster zone, stay safe.

  1. These are amazing photos Jess! Reminds me of bad flooding in my area almost 40 years ago now. Floods can be so devestating. Stay safe!
