Flood Disaster

A NATIONAL DISASTER is unfolding here….we’re bracing ourselves for more rain over the next couple of days, I have never ever in my entire life seen anything like this.  The Brisbane River has broken its banks with  evacuations underway in the heart of the city amid fears Brisbane and surroundings will see its worst flooding ever.  Public transport has been cancelled, talks of closing down  Brisbane Airport is a possibility and there are practically no mobile phone reception.  Where I am, the roads are closed within a proximity of +/- 10 km all around and as I type this, it is so very dark outside, (almost 2pm) with thunder and lightning everywhere.  Please keep those who are unaccounted for in your heart and prayers…we have not seen the end.

  20. Good God Girl.. this is really scary! This reminds of those Bombay floods… I wasn’t there then, but was scared out of my wits!!!
    You take care, darling…
    I hope the Rain Gods decide to ease down soon enough..

  21. Amanda! What an ordeal you are living through. I saw your video when you first posted it and watched it a couple times with the kids. Unbelievable, and how the cars all stacked up like that. Gives a whole new meaning to the FORCES of nature. I was later on YouTube and saw the same video with 2.6 million hits! Wish you’d give us an update.

  22. I didn’t realize you were posting regularly again.

    Amanda, so kind of you to take that family in and, although, solitude is welcome, perhaps it is well right now to have others around.

    Please keep safe and keep us up-to-date.

    In metta,

  23. Oh no, Amanda, too terrifying. You’re all held in our thoughts and prayers, xo

  24. Thats scary! My prayres are with you all. hope the rain will stop soon and the water will recede.
