  1. In the news today, I thought that I heard that the flooding is now spreading much further south down into New South Wales. What a biatch…

  2. It’s flooding all down the east coast of Australia. It’s been some weird weather. And we’re supposed to have up to 5 cyclones this season too. Awesome. Not!

  3. Hi everyone,

    the flooding is much worse than what those photos show. Twenty have been confirmed dead and billions upon billions of dollars damage has been done. Whole towns have been lost.
