Where about are you Wy yung? My brother is just outside of Ippswich (a hard hit area) and he is saying the media is blowing it up. Not as bad as they say. I have no personal experience of the floods, but 75% of QLD being underwater seems (at least if you take it literally) a bit inflated, given my brothers report and where he is. Maybe he is being a hard-ass?

I really am interested as to how bad it really is, and want to know myself.
