World News Australia - Flooding to continue for a month in Qld I'd just give a shout out to my fellow Queenslander's who have suffered in the biggest floods in living memory. These people have lost their homes and their belongings when Cyclone Tasha crossed the coast on Christmas morning and the resultant rain depression dumped record levels of rain across the whole state. I am fortunate here in the North....we are cut off by the floods,( from what little information I've been able to gather) but we haven't been evacuated, we still have power and our mains water is still fit to drink. What I have noticed is there is a shortage of food in the supermarkets and a shortage of fuel. The shelves are bare of bread, milk, powdered milk, batteries, candles and bottled water. But we are a resourceful and resilient lot, we Aussies, and we look after each other even when faced with such a devastating natural disaster. The bad news is that the rain, hail and high winds haven't stopped and more are forecasted.
