This still bring tears to my eyes. That flooding was horrendous, and the Equestrian Federation of Australia put together a video and kept us up to date with the situation in the equine industry, you would not believe how many horses were killed and seriously injured. Many were left to swim for up to 36 hours straight, standing on the verandas and roofs of 2 story horses. The injuries are horrific, severe lacerations, and extreme exhaustion/dehydration.
The poor people that were hit by that wall of water, they could do nothing by hold on and pray. Just awful.
And now Yasi is going to hit any minute. A category 5 cyclone that is reported to be even bigger than Hurricane Katrina, when compared in size, this cyclone would cover almost the entire European continent. Just the eye of it covers the Australian state of Tasmania. This is downright terrifying. Australia is copping it big time with mother nature at the moment, from devastating bush fires, to crippling drought, to the biggest floods on record, and now to the biggest cyclone on record. When will it end?
