As some of you may be aware my hometown of Brisbane has been majorly affected by flooding. Brisbane is the third biggest city in Australia. Three quarters of my home state has now been declared a natural disaster zone (an area larger than Texas and California combined). 15 people have died so far and there are still scores of people missing. Thousands of people homes and businesses have been destroyed. It is absolutely heartbreaking.
My heart goes out to the those who have lost everything.
I have received some lovely emails from you guys checking to see if I was okay. Thank you for your concern. My family and I are safe as we live a little out of town.
(this is the street I use to live on years ago. It is shopping centre was completely submerged under water)
And a big thank you to State Emergency crews, The Queensland Police Force and The Defence Force who are are out there saving people lives and searching for missing people.
