South East Queensland, Australia Floods

 

These photos are all taken and submitted by locals, as of Sunday 9th January.  Rain is forecast for the week ahead, with no indication of when it will stop.  I’m lucky…I live halfway up a mountain and won’t be flooded out.  But a lot of people are going to find out what happens when governments zone former swampland, as suitable for urban development.  If the rains continue and the flooding spreads into densely populated areas, this could become Australia’s biggest natural disaster in many years.
