Protection for Queensland

Blessings and thoughts with your family, Hazel. I hope they're ok.

We all need to work at this. Our Great Mother is sending us a lesson and we need to take heed. But she can't restore balance by herself!
May your summers and winters be short, springs be mild and autumn reaping plentiful.

I belong to the listserve for the Society for Vertebrate Paleontology. Dr. Alex Cook, one of our members from the Queensland Museum, passed on this link to pictures from Brisbane.

Most of the pictures are from around the Museum, which was flooded on its lowest floor but mostly undamaged. Dr. Cook, in part, provides this commentary:

"....To put this in perspective

About 2/3 of the state of Queensland, some of NSW and some of Victoria have been flooded or effected. An area of over 500 000 sq km is affected. A number of regional towns have been completely evacuated, and have flooded multiple times in the last two weeks. 18 people are confirmed deceased with more missing. Many hundreds have completely lost their homes, livelihoods, businesses and belongings, and thousands have
been temporarily displaced.

The city of Brisbane (1.2 Million people) has had significant damage and flooding, as has critical infrastructure throughout the state; rail, roads, power, ports, communications networks, coal mines etc.

Many of us count ourselves lucky compared to people in Brazil and other places who have had extraordinary tragedy this last short while.

Just an update from a muddy and slowly drying-out Brisbane.

....

Kind regards

Alex

Dr Alex Cook"

For whatever it's worth, colleagues had been trying to contact Dr. Cook without success but he was fine. It was communications that were out.
