Some Good and Bad News

Wow have things been happening here in this part of the world!! Here on the east coast of Australia we have had major flooding due to an ex-tropical cyclone turned rain depression. Boy has it been depressing!! For the last week or so we have had soooo much rain that the Mary River rose here to just under 11 metres. Many people in Maryborough and surrounding towns and cities have lost their homes and valuables to the raging waters. Unfortunately there has been a few deaths as a result of the flooding and the place is a huge mess. Luckily though my family and I are fine. No flooding here just the inconvenience of being surrounded by water and cut off with road closures for a few days. My heart goes out to all those displaced from their homes and those people who lost their loved ones to this tragic natural event. Please join me in well wishes and prayers for those effected. Our state of Queensland will be recovering for a long time to come.

Here is a page I did using some of the photos I took of the floods here in Maryborough. The top photo is of the Band hall completely surrounded by almost 11 metres of water. The photo underneath is of the road that gives us access to Hervey Bay (this is only one part that had been flooded). The flood marker is also on the page indicating the height of the water at the time the photo was taken. This marker is just in front of the band hall.
