aros. Queensland floods

fires and drought we understand
ravenous locusts rarer

floods another matter entirely
evacuations being announced continuously
an inland tsunami
wasn't part of this years' plan

I hope my daughter is ok

(a link to dramatic footage of cars being washed away)
abc news offers 24 hour coverage of the deluge.

I watch the news and feel great sympathy for the people of Queensland. Surely soon the rain will stop and the floods abate so that they can get on with the work of recovery. Prayers for your daughter.

Hildred and Charles: Thankyou for your thoughts, the recovery is going to be immense. My daughter describes the situation as surreal. thankfully, she is fine, but will help friends when they are allowed back to their home.
