Hope all our Aussie brothers, and sisters are ok.

There is massive flooding going on down under. And it's gotten real bad. Lets all hope that our friends down under are all staying safe.

Gives us a shout Chiz, Joker and all other Aussies.

I second that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Queen ... or-MJC.png

The total land mass of Queensland covers 22.5% of the Australian continent, an area of 1 730 648 square kilometers, making it the second largest state in the Commonwealth of Australia.[1] The total length of Queensland's mainland coastline is 6,973 km (4,333 mi) with another 6,374 km (3,961 mi) of island coastline.

That area in Sq. Miles is 1081655, 75% of that has been affected by floods meaning that 129978.6 Sq Miles in area is affected.

So if you can imagine the are taken up by Texas nearly twice and mate that is a lot of water 😮

I have been assisting with the rescue efforts and I have not had much opportunity to get on line and when I do I only have time for one or maybe two posts .. I do not see this changing for months as I will be involved in the cleanup and recovery efforts.

I have posted a link so that you can get some information here. http://www.couriermail.com.au/

Thank for you prayers thoughts and wishes. We have a saying over here, "She'll be right mate"
and we will because we are Aussies and we live in a country of extremes and because of that we are pretty tough.

Queensland's flood waters as they recede will and are now affecting Northern New South Wales, Victoria is also experiencing flooding and in Western Australia they have raging Bush (Brush) Fires.

Thank you once again for your prayers and good wishes.

Been watching the awful floods down there on the news.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.

Good show Joker. Real men do work when work needs to be done, what a selfless act. I hope I am never put in such a position. 🙁

The Clean up is well and truly under way in and around Brisbane the Capital of Queensland and other towns hit by the floods.

One rarely gets to see the mateship such communities are experiencing.

In an suburb of Ipswich (west of Brisbane) I set up a small First-Aid station with a First-Aid Kit in a Memorial Park Called "The Diggers Rest", within a space of 6 hours myself, a nurse and a Sports Medicine First Aid Officer treated over 100 minor injuries (Mainly Cuts and Abrasions) , because we were advising people to get Tetanus Shots we collectively called all of our contacts and the "First-Aid Station is now a Triage Station with a Doctor and Nurses who will be giving Tetanus Shots. All which are now sanctioned by State Health Department.

Tomorrow is a new day, I have decided to lead the Charge in getting a few more such Centers set up in the Disaster area that is Ipswich.

As for my other Aussie Brothers and Sisters on the BV, Yes, I hope that they are O.K .. even rath. 😀

Thank you guys for thinking about us over the pond.
