The whole state of QLD where I live is in disaster. Yesterday, the streets of Toowoomba (4 hours from here) where my sister and several friends live, were hit with freak flash flooding which claimed 8 lives, 4 of whom are children - and 72 people are still missing. It was described as an inland tsunami. The death toll in that whole Lockyer Valley region is set to rise dramatically, and even Brisbane city is under high alert this morning as the Wivenhoe dam and Brisbane River get set to overflow and cause similar flash flooding throughout many suburbs. People are being evacuated this morning. At Sandy Creek, water levels rose 3 metres in just 10 minutes = disaster.
The emergency services workers are being stretched to the limits - and it's STILL raining. Hundreds of people are trapped everywhere - in cars, on roofs.... in Grantham, they are currently evacuating the evacuation centre as more flash flooding is anticipated.
I don't know what else to say.
Please, just pray. For emergency workers to be plentiful, and kept safe. For those in danger to get out in time.
