Flooding

Hi all

The flooding is getting worse and spreading, it is so hard to believe unless you see it with your own eyes.
While we are safe and DH is on his way home as roads are being cut off, we do worry about our daughters place and hope the creek doesn't come up to the house.
The rain is just not stopping and everyone feels so help less.
There are still over 70 people missing in the Toowoomba area, many believed to be children, please keep us in your thoughts.

I'll keep you in my thoughts and hope that the rain subsides. We've had some flooding here in the past but I'm sure not as bad as what you are experiencing.

Will be praying for you Christine and the others affected by these floods. My husband is SES and whilst we are in Victoria, he just wants to put tools down on the business and come up and help. We have been watching the devastation for weeks, and the long special on TV this morning was so heart wrenching. I pray God keeps you and your family safe.
