Perhaps, if that flood plain is where I think it is in Queensland (nobody in the media bother to show maps as to where it is), then Lake Eyre may get quite a bit of water soon.

lake eyre ???


wrong state mate thats in South Australia


with all the rain Australia has had in recent times im sure lake eyre would have had a good fill


For those who are interested or not aware the floods in Queensland have been horrific so many lives ruined but then a day or so ago I saw mudslides in Brazil that made the Queensland floods look pretty ordinary.....


parts of Victoria have been flooded 3 times in last 6 months and i thought I heard South Australia and Tasmania are flooded too so global warming / global nightmare continues as I see europe and u.k and usa have had their fair share of crappy weather conditions tooo

Yes I know that, however to have a large Inland Sea (which sits at sea level) there has to catchment for it and for Lake Eyre it's catchment extends itself into parts of Queensland!  ;D   Specifically Western Queensland and you'll find Diamantina River, Eyre Creek, Lake Koolivoo, further north in Western Queensland below Mt. Isa and South of Selwyn Range is Channel Country. Of course if there were a flood out in them parts the Media wouldn't give too hoots about it!
 
Since the Floods have reached Brisbane the other floods (North of Brisbane) haven't even been reported, and little has been mentioned about the Victorian Floods - how ironic. I could have told people days ago that the Loddon River was under a considerable amount of stress just by checking out the ABC Radio website and Bureau of Meterology and now people are upset because they felt the reporters have failed to act.

with all the rain Australia has had in recent times im sure lake eyre would have had a good fill

Only if it's catchment has had a significant amount.

For those who are interested or not aware the floods in Queensland have been horrific so many lives ruined but then a day or so ago I saw mudslides in Brazil that made the Queensland floods look pretty ordinary.....

I don't know - being in a flood isn't exactly some place I would want to be in, media have described the sewage and then there's the debrie and cars and trucks being played around as if they were toys. Rudd 07 had to go to Hospital because he got an infection in his leg (or foot?) just by being in the water! And of course the media will probably throw in the (friendly) Sharks, Crocodiles, Snakes & Mozzies just for good measure. But I guess a Mudslide would be pretty freeky in any account.

parts of Victoria have been flooded 3 times in last 6 months and i thought I heard South Australia and Tasmania are flooded too so global warming / global nightmare continues as I see europe and u.k and usa have had their fair share of crappy weather conditions tooo

I'm not suprised either, some of those parts of Victoria which are flooded are natural plains featuring River Red Gums. They love to be flooded every so often even though the older plants can source deep enough to find ground water. A flood in those sorts of areas is basically what a bushfire maybe to another.

I'll just scrape in having to pay the flood tax if I keep having to do overtime, but it should be the minimum. If it gets implemented at all.

Just today, us in Perth, were getting bushfire   warnings, and a cyclone warning (the first in 2 decades). I'm hoping   they cancel each other out and we have a nice weekend.
 
  It seems like the whole world is falling apart.

Australia was built on an burning regime, though other countries (or continents) are as well. Europe is perhaps one of the few exceptions, unsure since European Blackberries enjoy a burn here, though that might only work in Australia!  :-\  Since their've become a noxious pain in the butt!  :o  Oh yeah, this is part of the work I do!  8)

PEOPLE were swept away, homes were flooded and roads turned to rivers as Victoria last night suffered an unprecedented deluge of cyclonic rain.Flash flooding hit big parts of the state, and some towns stood on the brink of evacuation during cloudbursts forecasters said were unique.
The monsoon brought chaos to Melbourne, causing widespread flooding and damage to homes.
A teenage girl was snatched to safety from a tree she was clinging to after being swept away by a torrent in Ashburton.

Families were rescued from floating cars and from homes, and 45 people were evacuated from a nursing home in Narre Warren South.
More than 100mm was dumped on suburbs - 137mm at Lyndhurst in the southeast and hundreds of homes were inundated, the fire brigade said.
Water 1.5m deep gushed through a home in Ormond.
Moorabbin and Narre Warren, in Melbourne's southeast, were the worst-affected, but the west also endured some of the biggest downpours in memory.
Hail stones the size of golf balls fell on Leopold near Geelong, and half a dozen factories were damaged in Strezlecki Grove, Laverton, when 132km/h winds swept through the suburb.

"A mini tornado hit the area for sure," factor owner Stephen Tennyson said.
"Floor-to-ceiling windows in my office are smashed, the flag pole is bent in four different angles and corrugated iron is strewn around the area".
About 30,000 households in central, western and northern Victoria were left without electricity due to lightning strikes.
The deluge was due to two cyclones: the angry tail of Queensland's killer Yasi, and the earlier Anthony.
In Richmond, Angelo Lambrinos's garage was flooded by a waist-deep torrent of stormwater.
"There was a nothing I could do," he said.
"The water was coming down the driveway like a river."
The SES had responded to more than 2030 calls for assistance, almost 1500 in Melbourne by midnight.
A dozen people were rescued from their cars, including a woman and her two children in Chelsea.
"Their car was actually floating in the floodwaters," SES spokesman Lachlan Quick said.
The deluge blocked roads including the South Eastern Freeway, shut down train and tram lines, and cut power across Melbourne.
Commuters were left stranded with at least eight Metro lines suspended and major delays at others.
Weather bureau forecaster Terry Ryan said the widespread impact of Yasi had been "unprecedented".
"Yasi has gone inland, and all the moisture is spreading southwards," he said.
"For a (cyclone) system to be so intense, so far inland, is unprecedented. We've never seen anything like it in Australia."
He said Cyclone Anthony had also contributed.
In Narre Warren South - where six houses burned down on Black Saturday - water was lapping at the front door of Steve Muir's home.
"The park at the end of the street is a five-acre lake," he said.
Mentone was virtually under water by 7.15pm com as water belted down .
Earlier, Mildura copped 112mm of rain in two hours. The SES there received over 100 calls for help. Halls Gap residents evacuated to Stawell in the face of flooding and landslips.
Extreme weather warnings were also issued last night for a number of towns in the state's northeast, including Benalla, Bright, Wangaratta and Myrtleford.
And it's set to worsen.
Falls of up to 200mm could swamp some alpine areas of the state today.
Melbourne and most of regional Victoria were warned to again prepare for flash flooding and another drenching of up to 100mm.
Parts of the northeast, still reeling from floods in recent weeks and in September, can expect up to 150mm. Rivers may again burst their banks.
The weather bureau issued flood watches on rivers across all areas except the southwest and southeastern corners of the state, and the SES urged all residents elsewhere people to prepare for the worst.
Up to 200mm was forecast for the eastern ranges near Mt Buller and Falls Creek.

Occasionally I have a License to Burn (not in the middle of summer obviously).
 
Gee Whiz is a little bit wetter here now - not underwater though. Our water management is handling it fine. The nearby water bowl may have some water in it.
 
The weather in Melbourne is contributed to the Cyclone which passed over Queensland, where in parts of the Cyclone have broken off as it travels Inland. To see all that happening one has to look at as seen from looking at Australia from space!  :)
 
This explains it better!  ;D

No rain for us this weekend, we have bushfire trouble. The fire department told us to stay indoors, and be prepared that we may have to evacuate. I can see the flames on a hillside not too far from my house in Kelmscott.

Yep, I'm in Perth. The fire isn't as close as it looks from my house,   when I look on a map. The police have the roads about 1km from my house   blocked. The water bombers are filling up at a lake about a 10 min walk   from my house, so we went an watched that for a while. Somehow it isn't as awesome watching my crappy phone camera video on youtube as it was in real life. It is 11:25pm and I can still here the helicopters and sirens.

Quite a few homes have been destroyed, and a lot more are still at risk, but no deaths or serious injuries so far. Well, one firefighter was hit by an ambulance, and was seriously hurt, but that is all. Rather ironic getting injured by an ambulance. It is very windy at the moment, not too hot though, mid 30's.

Do you have Trees or Herbs in direct contact with your House ?


Hope all will be right for you, good luck...


Sometime I do believe that the part of France where I live (Valence in Rhône alpes) is truely the piece of earth blessed by God...


Then I remember that I live in the most nuclearised place in the world (many Nuclear Power Plants... in south-Est France...

So I guess it is better we have no disasters...

The problem is not having disasters, it is being a disaster's victim..

But of course Nuclear is a special case... completely unnatural and cannot really be healed by time (human time)...

Hi MacDeath, so you live not too far from Lyon? My wife loves that area. She is in love with France in general, she is even taking French language classes. I should probably keep her away from French men  ;)

Yes, 100Km south of Lyon, i was even born in Lyon.
100km is nothing for a country like Australia... but in France we are a small country you know... it is far far away...lol.

Don't be that insecure... ::)

Well, Australia is already away from France...

And yes, I live in the most beautifull part of the world... despite the lack of sea, coral-rift and so on...

Great food and wines... at the very hearth of Europe...
i visited some MiddleAge casttles this weekend. 8)
(betwen Lyon and Grenoble....)

>>She is in love with France...
>>I should probably keep her away from French men.

well, you can't have France without the Frenchmen... but just get closer to French girls yourself... :D

To love France always mean to get romantically involved with a french... ::)
