Default Re: Australia's flooding

The floods are affecting many areas, including the post. Liverpool Barqueta sent me an instrument and it arrived in Sydney in a soaking wet box. Luckily it is a metal instrument. Had it a wooden shell and it would be screwed.

Also food prices will sky rocket. Things such as tropical fruit and even chillis will become rare.

As for the people and livestock, times. Will be tough. But the weather alone cannot be blamed. People keep building in high flood areas. This has become a subject of much controversy.

How affected that area was by the drought I do not know. QLD has had a high rainfall. The west of QLD, NSW, South AUs and the West were hard hit.

Best of luck to all.
