Queensland Floods 2010-2011

Over the past couple of days, Queensland has been suffering through some of the worst floods in most recent years. The floods having affected 31 towns and at least 200,000 people all over the state. 30 people have been confirmed dead, with more set to be confirmed and plenty missing. Bremers River has peaked at roughly 18m high, Savages Crossing has peaked at roughly 20m high, Brisbane river at roughly 4.5m high, and the Stanley River at roughly 4m high.

Images and videos have circulated the Internet and News Stations all over the country. Thought I would put together a few from the collection. The total cost in damages is looking well into the billions, and with only around 30-odd million been raised so far, more is needed. So head to http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html and find out how you can donate and help out those in need.
