Queensland Floods…

Some of my readers may not realise that I live 
in Regional Queensland, Australia, 
where it is currently flooding in a way we haven’t seen before. 
My family and I are fine, but there are many who are not. 
They have lost property and livestock, and in some cases loved ones. 
It is heartbreaking.

You can find more information in many places on the Web including:
Disaster Management Updates
Road Conditions Reports
Qld Police Service Updates
ABC Local Radio

There’s lots of footage on YouTube including this one:

You can donate to the relief efforts online at the Qld Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal (they are accepting local and international donations there)

Toni at Make it Perfect is running an auction on her blog to raise money

She is encouraging others to do the same 
so look for her master list of blogs participating when she has it ready.
Finally if you are in Queensland and in the midst of flooding, 
my prayers go out to you. 
I hope that you and yours can stay safe.

    As a (half) Aussie in Canada, I have been following the news reports closely. The dire situation is in my thoughts and prayers. I am heading over to the site you posted. PS My bloggy friend, you live in a land of extremes. I recall so many times I pray for rain on our family farm (northern NSW), and now this.

    So true, KJ. Not along ago all the Qld dams were short of water and now they are overflowing!

    Thanks, Tammy

    I forgot you were there! I have been trying to keep up with the story on BBC News all day. Please stay safe. My prayers are with you, your family and your country!!
