PLEASE...can people from countries other than australia let us here all know if this absolute tragic disaster is being reported overseas?

How much media coverage is this story of the floods receiving. Please take 2 minutes of your time to tell us what country or state you are from and is it on the main news, just in the papers or you didnt even know about it.

I'm not entirely surprised so little coverage has been placed on the floods overseas.

If any of you are interested and have facebook, this is a group full of people's photos from the last few days

www.facebook.com...

It's pretty crazy over here right now (I live in Brisbane). I've seen a few threads with a lot of kind words and offers of help and support. It's all very much appreciated.

I think your signature needs to be changed, or otherwise you need to A LOT "strive" harder.

Give it time, the cleanup bill will exceed the $1 billion mark.

The million, which by the way NSW and Vic state governments have already donated a million each so your facebook fluff piece is already way wrong, the money released already is for instant emergency funds for anyone who is effected by the floods, same as what they did during the Vic bushfires.

I'll jut add too that whatever ADF resources are needed have been used, an entire town was air lifted out by Black Hawks, four Kiowa helicopters are being used for search and rescue efforts, C130's, Sea Kings, Chinooks are all being used too.

I point all this out because the statement that you've copied from facebook is ignorant fear mongering and at a time like this, everyone needs to pull together, not stand divided.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

I've just gotten home from my place of work (a hotel) after being trapped by flood waters for 2 days and I can tell you, or everyone, from someone who is smack bang in the middle of it, the government is doing an absolutely amazing job.

They need our support and recognition for the tremendous effort they've put in from the moment this disaster started.

Wow...first of all to the heartless person with the missing heart! If anyone finds it, please return it to them...QUICKLY!
Second, I just looked at every website of news channels available in Southwestern Ontario Canada, where I am...and NOTHING!!! A-channel news, which covers most of southwestern ontario, City TV, which is a major city and has national coverage, or at least provincial..even CBC canada has nothing on its web-site, you have to think to click on international news, then scroll all the way down to a little line that says a wee blurb about flooding in Australia...Our house doesn't have cable, so it's our only access to news.
You know where i saw it? On yahoo ! Stuck between an article about 'Artsy Tennis Stars New Wardrobe', and '3 Ways to Get Back With Your Ex'.....
This is crazy!

In NZ also. We don't have tv, but we talk about the flood/s pretty much daily at work - almost as much as the Christchurch earthquake - and it's on our major news websites. Can't say I've heard much about the Brazil floods. Is anyone really surprised that it's not such big news overseas - especially in the US? Honestly we had some (mostly American) people swearing black and blue that NZ used to be north of Australia last year on ATS ;-)

Interesting times we are living in. It's gotta be hurting.

Our mayor was right in the middle of it, helping hand out sand bags and making sure everyone is okay on the ground. Our government has been doing a fantastic job. I myself had to apply for the disaster relief fund that was set up a few weeks ago for the floods. The call was answered within a minute - which is 20 times faster than on any other day. The lady on the phone, who was in a dedicated call centre for the floods, went through everything for me, offered me free counselling if I needed it and made sure she did up my application so that I could maximise my chances of getting it approved (I have no work for the next few weeks, because it was destroyed in the floods). I couldn't have asked for better.
