27 January, 2013 Wide Bay Flooding inc Hervey Bay

Ex tropical cyclone Oswald has left a path of destruction as it passed through the Wide Bay region. Hundreds on millimetres of rain fell on towns like Monto, Agnes Water, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Gympie and Maryborough.We have lived here just over 12 months and NEVER any where in this world have I seen rain like we have just had.It is a break off from a Cyclone and the devastation caused by flooding includint homes,farms and swollen brooks and rivers People of Australia are very hardy when the going gets tough and pull together.I live in Hervey Bay and have a huge flood drain across the road from us,the water spilled out onto the road (approx 2 metres deep) kids were being stupid and actually trying to swim there,these drains are VERY fast flowing at times.The rain stopped just afore we were about to be flooded and our 5000 litre water tank was empty due to previous drought! (what a country) and filled in a matter of hours !!
