Queensland is once more being inundated with a massive storm system. It is slow-moving and dumping enormous amounts of rain and lashing gale-force winds of over 100kph. Over 6 days it has moved south from Cairns in the north. Yesterday it reached Brisbane, our beautiful capital city, after the huge storms of 2011 many people had only just put their lives back together again.
Sweet Gypsy Pauline just sent this out regarding the flooding in Australia. Let's hope the storm exhausts itself soon. Here are some images from an online ABC report: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-01-27/queensland-floods-as-oswald-moves-south/4486174 Z
