Southeast Houston & I ain't heard nuttin' except for what's here on ATS and a Yahoo article talking about how Brisbane avoided flood disaster.
http://news.yahoo.com...

However, top news is the landslide in Brazil which has affected 200-some-odd people.

Houston news is usually crap-ola and agenda-istic to begin with anyway, so that's really not saying much.

I saw some coverage of the flooding on it on FOX News this morning, Brisbane is getting smashed isn't it.

It is in Tucson AZ, and it was front page on CNN last night. I think that since the incident here has happened, the terror in Tucson has been the main uproar in the U.S. I feel that the flood is a terrible tragedy that was caused by nature, and I am sorry, if only nature had the rationality we do. People are more interested in insane people than weather events. Sad but true

The flooding in Australia is being reported in our local media here in the Philippines. Even CNN and BBC are reporting it.

But what is not being reported in the MSM abroad is the flooding that is happening in our country now.

"At least 213,264 families or 1,120,685 people in 1,073 villages in 124 towns and 10 cities in 21 provinces had been affected."

Source


The latest news I have found:

"The heavy rains began shortly before New Year’s Eve and have affected 1.29 million people across 144 towns, including 338,000 who fled their homes or are receiving food or other aid from the government, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said in its latest bulletin."

right but isn't it still your choice to watch only the local news? you can't really be surprised you haven't heard about it if you purposely avoid hearing about these things...

EDIT: My apologies, I should have read more of this thread before posting - you later state the international news you read, sorry if a was a bit defensive..

The flooding in Australia is being reported by our local media here in Hungary too, and we get a pretty good coverage because lots of Hungarians are living in Brisbane.

I've been following the flooding story from the start.

Then again I use the BBC website so this isn't really an accurate indicator of what most Americans know...

Well...I'm from New Zealand...which probably doesn't count as half us Kiwis leave over there anyway, given we're so often referred to as Aussies 'East Island'...

We're certainly watching with grave concern as so many of us here have family and friends over there...


All the very best...,much strength and prayers to you all...

The US will help out I am sure, all we need is a good concert with Bono or something to drum up awareness.

Oh, and if you guys need em, we have several really nice FEMA camps we could put your folks up in!

exactly, guess what else. during that telethon - 5 of our biggest local retailers could ONLY manage a pitiful 50,000
YET a scottish based airline that has only been here for 4 years, gave $1,000,000!!!

An independent airline has managed to match a entire nations government's contribution.

KFC&Subway QLD managed 50,000 - they would probably make that in a matter of days under normal circumstance...

I wonder if all this has any connection to the sun showing up 2 days early in the Artic and Antartic, the gulfstream going dead, etc.? Major changes are happening and I don't think there is a dang thing anyone can do about it. Might as well sit back and enjoy the best you can.

I just put this LINK on my FB page.

I don't watch any MSM news anymore. It is both a benefit, and a detriment to waste any of my attention on.

I wouldn't have known that our friends down under are under water had it not been for ATS.

I'm in the pacific northwest.

I find this news pretty upsetting for me, I can't imagine the adversity you good people are enduring.

Warmest regards.

that's awful, I'm sorry I did not know, so essentially, the islands above/near Australia are suffering too? to be honest we're kind of all in the same boat then and while we can help each other and will do, it seems that international support is what will make or break it for most of us.

donate - Phillipenes flood relief appeal
Red cross - how to donate - philippines floods
