When your local sewerage works goes under water you dont want to go into the water..this one was at Rockhampton.
No aircraft coming or going from here, this is why the armed forces were brought in.
Where do you start?
One wrecked boat, one stuffed bridge.
A man saving a roo, just one man, just one roo but every bit makes a difference.
This guy is a dead set hero, he will probably be forgotten by history but he motored around hauling drowning Roos into his boat and taking them to high ground. You can see theyre not happy with their ears back like that..but are reserved to being rescued. (these are wild roos)
This is why were having troubles here. Australia is a largely flat and the flood spreads far and wide.
One TV station said in places the flood was 2000km wide. (1250miles)
You have to have a sense of humor, even at times like this..Queenslands mud army.
I wasn't in a hurry to put these up but good ol' Queensland is already heading for it's next disaster and I need room for that. Thats right! as you read this a cyclone closes in on the former flood zones.
