Queensland Australia,and then the rains came in..
« on: January 11, 2011, 10:11:13 AM »
Not Royal related other then the name of Queensland but I need to post this here,the disaster that takes
place as we speak and takes more and more lives by the day and causes incredible damage and suffering,the
worst of floods since 1974.An area as large as France and Germany combined,flooded,many many missing or
dead.My heart and thoughts go out to Australia the Brave and all affected!

And then it got worse,now even the metropolis Brisbane is evacuated,and the city of Toowoomba was hit
and over 70 people are reported missing there:

Not only Australia,but Brazil too has its share of intens rains and desastrous floodings.
Over 400 people died just north of Rio de Janeiro due to mudslides.

Sri Lanka finds 1 million people homeless due to the rains.
