Queensland's Flooding Continues

Today's 24 hour rainfall.

 For us in Ireland, or indeed within Europe, it is hard to image the reality of the recent floods in Queensland Australia. It is impossible for us to image the scale of the affected area which is larger than France and Germany combined with more then 200,000 people suffering the consequences. I was only in communication a couple of days ago with a Colleague based at the university at Rockhampton which has been severely affected and is still waiting for the flooding to reach its peak.

Up to date information can be obtained from the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Emergency website which links to the Queensland Flood Warning Centre.  More information on Flooding in Australia: Link
