Our house remains unaffected by floodwaters, but others nearby are not so lucky. Floodwaters are expected to peak in about 2 hours, and then reach an even higher peak in another 14 hours. Already the road at the end of our street is under water. The suburb next to us has required some evacuations. Our neighbours are housing friends whose house is ruined by flood.
We are so sad for those who have lost homes, vehicles, businesses, and even loved ones. We are thankful that we are ok.
