Comparison photos

This photo was taken during our previous flood around Christmas when the flood was at 6 metres. The swings that Sarah is playing on, features in the following photos.

Park & Swings taken at 8am this morning.

Park & Swings taken at 4pm this afternoon.
These three photos show the devastation and the speed at which the rivers are rising.  This park is at the confluence of two rivers - the Bremer & the Brisbane rivers. The Bremer is due to peak at 11pm tonight and could reach as high as 18m.
Brisbane river is still rising and tomorrow we are going to have a King Tide at 3pm, as Brisbane is a tidal river this is going to make the situation worse.

Our good news is that we are safe and dry.

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes - we are dry and safe - the rain has eased a little for the moment.

It is going to be a long night and a wet tomorrow.

Oh my goodness, I hope that you are on high ground Beverly. That water rises so quick, unreal. Stay safe and I hope all the best for you, and I'm glad to hear that the rain has eased up a bit. I hope it stays away for some time now for you.

Hi there Beverly, I'm just checking back in here to see how the water levels are and I'm praying that you and your family are safe and each one of you is alright. I hope to hear an update soon. Take care my friend.
