Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
It's just not stopping, now Ipswich and Brisbane are being flooded - possibly higher than 1974. Still raining

7 metre high walls of water down in Lockyer valley...

Rain Map - looks like it might be clearing - see national map link - now a cyclone is winding up in Coral Sea area.... also one outside West Australia

Queensland flood disaster zone now spans 75pc of state

'Mega disaster zone' could be declared for Queensland floods

Wivenhoe at 190 per cent and rising

Not silly - it was expanded above 'optimal water supply capacity' after it was built to have a temporary flood buffer - it can go to 225% before it tops - but it is not designed to top as it will erode and possibly collapse.

Btw - arsonist bushfire in West Australia too ...

Australia - land of drought and flooding rains - we do nothing by halves!

BTw cat loading very slowly - we seem to be having some net hassles in various areas....
