Itís Flooding again!

January 27th, 2013 at 01:22 am

We had a cyclone in the gulf about six days ago and it was only a category one but the rain it generated is huge, our gulf is 2000 km away from Brisbane but today we have 125km winds and so far over 115 mm of rain so far with another 12 hours to go. Some towns and cities further north are now flooding higher than 2011 flood. Lockyer Valley where all those people died last time is flooding now and all that water is heading for the Bremer river then on to the Brisbane river so around 3500 properties in Ipswich and Brisbane flooding again in the next 48 hours twice as it king tides at the moment so the local creeks are flood now because of the King tides and all this rain some areas have had only year worth of rain in 24 hours so flooding. Tornados are coming with this monsoon rain so far we have had about 8-10 down the coast. Black-out is around in different suburbs my son place has lost power and the linemen are not going out until it safe to fix them. I could have a problem with the loss of power or with Tornado or one of the neighbour trees fall over. I will not be flooded here as I am 45 m above sea level.

Check January 2011 posts for last time it Flooded here.

So I have had no spending day here as I never even opened the front door today to go out.
