As I mentioned before, this natural disaster hit very close to home for me. I can't walk down my street without seeing people crying over their destroyed houses. People are pulling together in the hundreds to help strangers, but these people in Brisbane and other areas were taken by surprise and most of them lost most of all of their property. This event will help these people rebuild their lives and make things less traumatic for the people who have lost everything.
If would like to see the extent of the damage, I have uploaded some photos to my flickr of pictures I took during the first half of the floods. You can see them Here
On a related note; I have been evacuated from my home and I have no idea when I can return due to damage to the electricity system in my area. If you need to contact me, please understand that I can't be as prompt as I am usually!
