If you live in Australia, you've probably heard about the Queensland floods. The area that's been affected is the size of New South Wales, or France and Germany combined!(Click image to enlarge)
Our little city has now been completely cut off by flood waters, the shelves in the supermarkets are empty, commercial flights have been shut down, the airport closed and a lot of the roads in the city are under water.The flood level isn't due to peak until Tuesday or Wednesday and is said to be at over 9 meters. It will be a few weeks before it dries up and the Bruce Highway opens again.Thankfully we are well out of the way of the flood waters, but a lot of residents aren't. I can't imagine the cleanup we'll be faced with afterward, and the mosquitoes will be horrendous!(The area under this little bridge is usually a dust bowl with a few weeds and grazing horses. It's now totally under water!)Please share a prayer for the people who have lost their homes and possessions under water, and those in Bunderburg and Emerald and surrounding townships that are now faced with an enormous amount of damage.
