Australian Flooding

I have been following the stories of the flooding in Queensland with interest and concern.

This morning, the stories took a personal turn as my hometown of Brisbane is now affected. The dam protecting the city has held back what it can and now must allow flood waters into the city to prevent it from bursting.

To think it was only about 7 months ago that I walked by the 1974 flood marker!

I hope my friends are alright.

Quick edit to the original post; my friend Mark pointed me to this video from the town of Toowoomba. This is intense!
