Blog surf:Wet day

It’s been raining non-stop since Wednesday, never seen rain like this b4. I mean literally all day long, non-stop, deluge of downpour. Yesterday, picked up Jordan amidst some drama of screaming children who were trying to avoid the rain being blown in by the strong gusts of wind. Some people’s umbrellas got ripped off and times like these, I am grateful for my free Petronas Super king size umbrella.

Wet, miserable May Day..... and May Day it is, because this is the worst flooding in 35 years and has prompted the government to declare a state of emergency in southeast Queensland. The declared disaster area takes in the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast and areas west to it, and the Toowoomba region.

Hundreds of roads were cut off, trapping children at school. The flood forced evacuations, brought down power lines and filled dams to overflowing.

Some places no power supply — about 5000 residents affected. —
