“Never have I seen such horrible weather. Here’s to 2011 being an improvement. I can’t see how it could be any worse.”
– Me, when I blogged 11 days ago.
These are some pictures from Queensland in the past 24 hours which has been hit with severe flooding across 75% of its populated areas. The whole city came to a standstill. I got sent home from work by midday. Transport became gridlocked, supermarkets have been emptied of supplies and I don’t think we’ll be up and running again for a few days yet.
So far the toll is ten people dead and seventy eight missing 🙁
The crazy part is that they think they worse is yet to come. More specifically, the flooding is expected to reach its peak on Thursday.
