    With 3/4 of Queensland Australia flood affected tomorrow is D day when the king tide on Brisbane river plus the massive floodwaters bearing down on this city of 1.5 million people. Thousands will be affected as some 30,000 homes in Brisbane city and ipswich will be flooded. The main city has flood waters already in financial district. This is the most devastating flood ever in Australia.

    I am safe and live 20k out on high ground we are currently on holidays away from the State but return sat assuming airport open

    City after city town after town from Cairn's 2000 k north of Brisbane have been flooded To view the destruction on tv is just a sample if what has happened.

    The loss if life is high and large numbers of people are missing in the floods.

    I decided to give this update as I have received some 20 messages from members whom were concerned

    Glad to hear you are safe.

    A terrible natural disaster. Hopefully other countries will be quick to offer support.
