Pray for Australia

Right now, a natural disaster is being experienced in Australia's tropical state, Queensland. Incredibly high rainfall - an unusual occurrence during our summer season - has caused mass flooding through most of the southern Queensland, affecting Rockhampton, Toowoomba and Ipswich [among other nearby towns] and has begun to decend upon the state capital, Brisbane. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes and set up in shelters throughout the Queensland state, with a confirmed 10 dead people - 5 of which are children - and over 90 missing.

North-Western New South Wales and areas around Victoria, including Melbourne, are among those now on high alert for flooding due to the incredible rainfall expected [and being experienced] over northern Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Cyclones in the north of Western Australia, fires near Perth...

Its not just praying for those who have perished in these floods, but also for those being displaced from their homes in the shelters, and its praying for those who are cut off from towns for supplies and who are isolated by the floodwaters.

Its also praying for those who have gone up from all over Australia to assist in the search and rescue operations, its also for those who are risking their lives saving those who are stranded, and its for the clean up that will come after all of this - that communities will rally together and support one another.

Yeah... crazy times... but Australian's are good at supporting one another during a crisis. Usually.
