the rains in australia...keep coming...and so do the waters

just heartbreakingly horrible these massive floods in australia. the raging waters are now sinking suburbs in brisbane, the capital of the state of queensland and the third largest city in the country.
up to 40,000 properties are expected to be impacted by flooding by thursday based on the latest flood modelling.

of these, 19,700 are residential properties which will have flooding across their entire property. a further 12,000 are expected to have flooding across part of their property.

about 3500 commercial premises will have flooding across their entire property and a further 2500 will have flooding across part of their property.

a further 2300 properties such as parks and vacant land will also be flooded.

the depth of flooding on individual properties is not known because this flood event is expected to exceed all previous records. - courier mail
 some are managing to keep their sense of humour, as some tweets can attest.
