Hi Ianfrom the group A1-Unique Australia. It is a real tragic, the picture we see on TV and for many people it is twice in a row. I like your photo but not the event. Regards Ebi

Hi Ebi,

The last flood to inundate the garage seen here was in 1999, this flood being about 75mm higher than that one. This is now the 3rd highest flood on record after 1893 and 1955 at Imbil. Bundaberg and its hinterland towns are in shock - their current flood has exceeded all previous records. And Bundaberg is quite a flat city so adding more than a couple of metres to the height of the flood means that large areas are now flooded and the increased depth has simply demolished homes and other buildings. And as for the small crops industry it has been an economic disaster where the farms have been flooded.

Ian
