It is sad, Berend. Thanks for your empathy. As you can see the flood was about 1M below peak at the time of this photo, here.

..and certainly not open 7 Days. But I hope they are back in business again.

Kind regards, Fried.

I hope the situation has normalized and people have been able to return to their homes and businesses... as my father says... the irons are arranged ... the important thing is that people are good, with eager and faith to succeed in this difficult situation!!!

Thanks Ian for showing the reality... perhaps serve for something ... perhaps serve to much!!!

Friendly greetings, Toto

What you say is so true, Toto. We cope with disasters when the goodness of people is called upon. And it has been here. But now that the floods have gone, the process of rebuilding is difficult and slow for many people. There are many hidden costs to such events. And decisions about reopening businesses is often very difficult for many.

This summer has been very severe in Queensland genearlly, and right now communities in the north that were devastated by Cyclone Yasi and now experiencing torrential rains and floods all over again. That is tough - when your temporary shelter is isolated or uninhabitable.

Thanks for your concern.

All the best to you and your community, Toto.
