Floods in QLD very serious
We are fine as on a hill! If anyone is desperate for a dry spot to go to, then just arrive on our doorstep, you'll be welcomed!
Phones are mostly down due to 'over use'. Brisbane CBD is being evacuated and Doug is safely on his way home,although he has been sitting in traffic jams for hours and will most likely still sit for hours more as everyone gets out of the way of the coming water. Part of the problem is that the Brisbane River is tidal and as we are expecting a King tide later on there is concern on top of the worry of the Weivenhoe dam's expected bursting. We have friends in flood hit areas, most are un-contactable, please pray for them. People were buying boats, rope and life jackets at our local camping shop - obviously planning to help rescue people.
