I couldn't belive my eyes last night when I saw the news of flash flooding in Toowoomba ~ I have many dear friends who live there, I have been their midwife and cradled their babies as they were born. The images and video are devestating.
All my friends are ok, not so their houses and cars. Yesterday seven people from the town died in torrents of water and over 50 people are still missing. Please spare a thought for them today.
This picture from ABC news www.abc.net.au/ is of Toowooba's main street. If you follow this link you can view terrifying video of cars being hurled down streets and a man clinging for his life to a tree as a van crashes into it ~ thankfully he was ok and was rescued, you can view that video too.
The water is now heading toward Brisbane and our city's main dam flood gates are all open ~ the dam was built after the 1974 floods when the city went under water...testing time.
