I will try to post some pics for the international viewers though I'm sure you'll see it on the news. Its like an inland tsnumai going down the Toowoomba range
Anyways take care

I hadn't heard anything about the flooding till I saw a post from a friend on FBook.
I hope everyone is on high ground as well. Be safe my Aussie friends.

i'm an aussie too but i thank my lucky stars i'm not in qld. the pictures an videos we are seeing are absolutely heartwrenching. they now think that the brisbane river is going to flood the cbd because they are going to have a king tide tomorrow! what rotten luck. my hopes and prayers are with everyone involved.

There are 13 confirmed dead now. 72 missing. Brisbane river has broken it's banks. These floods are going to be worse than the 1974 floods that damaged or destroyed nearly 7000 homes.

My thoughts are with all those affected.

Our country is a scary place to live at the moment, there is also flooding in NSW & Vic & northern parts of Western Australia. We are also battling an out of control bushfire in part of WA too.

Death toll has been revised to 9 confirmed. 5 people have been found safe so missing is now at 66.

Gahhh I feel for everyone I am just fortunate as where I am there are no floods, and bushfires are a good distance away from me
I hope everyone is okay...
