I was in Bris not to long back. Went up and down the river on the ferry on a jolly.

It is the most livable city I have ever been too. Even had a good craic at the casino watching a mate doing a gig. Had good times all over queensland.

To think that places like southbank could dissapear, and all those people, some friends and family being displaced or hurt, breaks my heart.

But seeing how queenslanders rebuilt after the 70's it gives you hope.

Hard times ahead though.

Any help we can give will be needed.

HAARP??? havent read the question here yet so i'm asking it now. Does anyone else have an uneasy fealing this is un-natural, and maybe Haarp is mix up in it??? Usually all us Aussies would be burning in 40+ degree heat bush fires scorching half the country. Why this year worst floods on record? Why this year cyclones and rellentless rain? last year they were trying to master earthquakes this year its hurricanes and floods HAARP!!!??? lets hear some opinions please, im no expert.

I live in Sydney, have been to QLD many times, its absolutely surreal to see this.

This disaster is bringing people together andthats heart-warming and the place to send your love and energy.


Interesting Fact: Since the Dec 21 2010 eclipse and alignment, QLD (specifically the Western Downs area) has experienced no less than SEVEN (7) "significant water events" (ie: massive floods). That's no coincidence, surely.

The world is definitely experiencing "something".

Its only a few weeks into the new year and there is some crazy and scary things happening everywhere.

You dont often see situations where 27ft waves sweep through a town, or areas bigger than Texas under 9m of water.

yeah its full-on alright.

Im not that keen to jump on the "something is going on" bandwagon, BUT there are certainly some bizzare events unfolding which must be considered as possibly linked.

Regardless, we must use these events to bring ourselves closer together, look after your brothers and sisters across the globe where possible and remember that there is a wisdom at work here, as odd as thats ounds

Not sure haarp has anything to do with it.

Could be because of weather modification in one place distablising the climate of another..

Im not an expert

El Nina seems to be the culprit.

All I know is that speculation should wait until this is over.

There are many folks who have lost everything and some are dead.

They need support more than anything.

So I would encourage people to visit the link on my sig.

Hi fellow ATS's I'm sitting at my sisters house 30klms away from my own house because I got caught out yesterday and can't get back home. My son is in NSW at his dads and is due to come home on Friday night but we can't get home and a friend now tells me there is no power to my suburb.... not sure when the power will come back on.

My suburb is completely underwater, my house is fine but I can't get to it because every single road between here and there is under water. Not just under water but completely submerged. We are expecting the river in Brisbane to peak at 4am tomorrow and a king tide at 4pm tomorrow afternoon. This will devastate our city.

This is heartbreaking to watch. I lived through the 74 floods and we lost everything then so I feel the pain of those who have lost everything now. My son is safe in NSW and will stay there until it is safe for him to come home but boy I miss him, it's been 3 weeks...

Both the Qld Premier and the Prime Minister have been in Brisbane during this whole ordeal and will remain here until the threat has passed.

Please send your thoughts and prayers to all who are suffering through this terrible time.

Peace.

Anna Bligh has been all over this like a rash so the comment from the OP is unwarranted. The PM has also made several appearances at briefings. Maybe you need to tune in a bit more matey.

There is no HAARP activity...it is a NATURAL DISASTER (but very coincidentally exactly 37 years after the January 1974 flood)

I was talking to some aussies who thought otherwise.

I now see I was wrong so retract that comment in the OP.

Thanks for clarifying that point for everyone


It is actually odd how many people are oblivious to what is really going on around them. Tonight my son sat with us and watched a bit of the
continuing broadcast and then told us he did not know anything about the floods!!! I was amazed and asked what rock he has been living under. I was blown away that he did not know what was going on.

Yis is right... Maybe it's because us Ausses have the knack to just pull thru. I dunno, but if this was in the US, ATS would be flooded with news, and threads.

I have to check my own posts to get back to these threads.

They are no on the front.

We dont warrant the attention.. grr

WE BLOODY WELL DO.

Who was that guy that said Bush doesn't care about black people?

Well

Obama doesn't care about Australians..

Carry on with your show..

meh..

I haven't read all of these posts, so you'll have to excuse my ignorance.

I am a resident of Brisbane, QLD. I can promise you all that things are very dire where we are - and worse still further west of the CBD. Our supermarkets, if not closed completely, were stripped in the panic of yesterday, when the river started to rise quite quickly. A lot of people have seen their houses under water. This image is a view from around the corner of my house:
sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net...

That was this morning. The tides caused everything to go under by another meter or so by this afternoon. Where I am is certainly not the worst of Brisbane at the moment, which is sad.

We've been lucky enough here to have a community that really knows how to pull together. All over the Brisbane council facebook page are offers for people to come and stay, or places for people to store things. All these people, complete strangers. A few of the storage places are offering free storage for people's goods and then there is our mayor, right in the thick of it helping people with sand bags.

The worst is apparently not quite over. There are over 70 missing and 12 dead last I checked, which was yesterday/this morning. One of my friends told me about a 4 year old by over the hill from her who fell of the boat his family was in and drowned. It's tough here, there's no doubt. Most places have no power and some, no food.

All things considered, we've gotten through this kind of thing before, and we can do it again. I count my self very lucky to live on a hill and be dry and alive, though I am only meters away from rising water at the moment. All of your support is much appreciated. A lot of people here can really use the kind words.

Yeah

A snowflake falls on London and it gets blanket coverage


Yet most of us here have friends and family in Australia and its sad how the media here are responding.

It's a shame the AFL and NRL are in an off season. I remember they both raised a good bit of money for the Tsunami that hit Samoa or Tonga last year, I've forgotten which

Also since the recent developments I have a few mates in Brisbane who've also had to leave their homes. A couple are at local hospitals (not injured, they're taking people in)

Still absolutely amazed at the silence in the British media. I think it's disgusting. If this happened in an American state we'd be getting live coverage round the clock.

It's odd.

A horrific situation to be in - I hope you stay safe.

My son-in-law's parents live and work in Port Hedland, WA, the other side of the country as this disaster - but we're still watching the updates on this because with all this freak and weird weather, who knows what will happen next or where.

It's possible that we could all find ourselves in a situation like this one day, and maybe soon - we need to know what to do and any info posted here can help us all.

A tropical cyclone is meant to hit Queensland on the 28th of January. Supposedly.

It's not that odd that people are oblivous, it all depends on what they have been fed by the media.

For example did you know about the floods in Sri Lanka and the floods in the Philippines at the moment?

Most people haven't got a clue that this is even happening due to the media only really reporting on developed countries

The racist media?
