This You tube video was taken yesterday in the city of Toowoomba, which is located high in the hills some 100 kms from the city of Brisbane. Workers filmed from their office window as the wall of water began to speed through their town… it's incredible. The water built up to a 21ft high waves.
As it flew down the mountain two entire towns were washed away. Houses were picked up and some were found 20 kms from their foundations.
People scrambled to safety and 100's were rescued by helicopter from the rooves of their houses.
There's a chilling aspect that things are getting worse in the floods in Queensland.
Covering almost 1/4 of our country the floods are devastating. They reach the capital city of Brisbane in about 4 hours time. The city has been evacuated and the power turned off.
I find it hard to concentrate on the day to day things right now.
We here in the South watch in horror as hundreds of thousands of people the same as us are loosing their livelihood and possessions.
The real life drama is playing out right before our eyes.
All we can do is hope and pray that no more lives will be lost.
