Major flooding through town near a local western wear store we shop at sometimes.
Some flooding photos (sorry they are dodgy...)
Roads & gutters everywhere are ruined, this one is near Repco in Toowoomba.
These photos are not by me. They are from a Facebook user 'Krystal Anderson'. This are taken from Grand Central (our big shopping centre) these would've been taken in the 'Myer' section. It's pretty full on.
As I post this blog it is still raining & it's getting heavier and the emergency service radio channel is constantly going, it sounds crazy... I am so grateful for the police, fire & ambulance people (& the emergency service people) that do their very best & work in the most dangerous condition to keep us all so safe, seriously the stuff I am hearing on this radio channel is scary. Thank you.
We are also just watching the news channels, the images are insane. It's so scary to watch. Toowoomba has now been added to the long list of towns affected by the floods. Ipswich is now on the 'watch list' to bein the next severely affected town, as they down stream from Wivenhoe Dam (which is now at 140% capacity & Somerset is at 150%). Ipswich is the town we moved from, it's where we have friends, Trents family & my parents property... QLD is in weather chaos, it's so crazy. We are ok, but we are all praying for the people who are so much worse off then we could ever imagine. Please be safe.
I will keep you all updated via my Twitter & Facebook account.
