I am in USA and I have not heard about it at all. I do watch the news also. About 45 minutes a day at least.

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.

It's been the main news headline on tv in the UK for at least the last week. In fact, compared to the Jared Loughner event the Australian floods have had maybe 10 times if not more coverage on our news networks.

As an American here in Gosford, Australia i can tell you the flood is a bad as katrina. 24-7 news coverage so far.. I have talked to friends back in las vegas, NV and they had no idea what was going on.
It really upsets me to know that the U.S. media is the way it is. My wife tells me that when Katrina was in force, it covered their media non stop here in Australia..
What i can seem to understand is "Why?".. Is running a story on the floods here in AUS going to hurt their numbers?
