Gleeful Discontent

My name is Marie. I like to think about stuff and occasionally write it down somewhere.

So this is what happens when an 8 metre high wall of water hits a town.
Not surprisingly, it’s being described as an inland tsunami. 
More pics of the flash flooding in Queensland, Australia collated together by BBC News here and a collection on Facebook specifically of Toowoomba flooding here.
Hope everyone I know in Toowoomba, including my family, is OK.  At this early stage, at least 7 people have been reported dead in Toowoomba and the nearby Lockyer Valley area with many more missing.
To help those affected you can call 1800 219 028 in Australia or go to www.qld.gov.au/floods for the official Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal or donate to the Salvos who always do a fine job of assisting those in need. www.salvos.org.au
