Yep, had the same problem here in Mackay a couple of years ago, 4000 home went under water, mates house was so deep that the only way he could get around inside his home was to paddle a canoe.
We have had constant rain here for the past few months, and the wet season has just officially stared, much more to come yet according the weather man, just hope it not a repeat of last year cyclone, and a couple of years before with the Big flood.
Poor old Rocky down the road is now getting all our water, which will stay up for a couple of weeks, but if the rain sticks around we might have to call in Noah & co. to help get us out of the place... For interest for our overseas friends.. the wet season runs through to March, so we bound to get a bit more over the coming days.. It might be a bit wet now, and lost of food crops washed away, but think of the coming years, plenty of underground water, bumper crops, creeks and river having a mighty good flushing. fish stocks returning. Hey, it nature way of correcting. But at the same time many people are hurting bad. Cheers Lek
