I hope the folks in this town were OK, but the amazing thing to me is no one in the office building gave a "heads up" to their fellow employees that THEY HAD BETTER MOVE THEIR DAMN CARS. They clearly had enough time to park their cars on the other side of the building.
I do like that the guy in the Rover did manage to move his.
My Neices husband flew back to Brisbane last Sunday. She's still here with their son till Saturday.He's in their apartment. 5th floor. Can't get to work (flooded), no electricity, but he had the presence of mind to buy 4 big bags of ice to keep the freezer and fridge going for a bit. He's got gas for the balcony barbecue, and he's going to stay put. Their new house is up high on a hill, and is quite safe, thank goodness.He said via the phone yesterday that he saw the ferry wharf go floating past.
I couldn't figure out what that guy was doing. Puncturing the tires? Wheel locks?
I'm wondering if he's got manual four wheel drive that you have to engage? The question I really have is this: When the water is rising a couple inches a minute, and your car is about to get swept away (possibly with you in it), and you're fiddling with your wheels, why in God's name are you prancing around with one hand holding a brolly?!?!?
Unusually heavy rainfall, which has caused flooding in several parts.. The city was getting under heavy rainfall. I think this rainfall crosses all the records of this year..
