The floods in Queensland, Australia have been devastating to all. The farmers have lost crops and livestock, the mines have been flooded and are now in operable for some time to come and worst of all, people have lost everything in the floods, Pets have had to been abandoned and in most cases the only way to escape was by either boat or helicopter. At last count there was approx 22 towns that have been flooded and today we are expecting about 150 – 200 mils of rain. Not what we need that’s for sure.
