Thousands of people were forced to evacuate their houses
due to exceedingly heavy rain and flooding.
I heard it has rained for 2 months in Queensland.

According to the news, water came out of a dam, and it reached 4.2 metres and is still rising.
This is the first time since the catastrophic 1974 floods
that Queensland has experienced such widespread flooding.

It is also said that by tomorrow morning almost 20,000 homes in the city will be flooded.
So far, 12 people were confirmed dead
and 41 people are still missing.



Although the weather is not good and it is cloudy and there are many showers these days,
it was sunny today and I cannot believe that flooding has happened in the same country.
It is too peaceful here.
I realized that the power of nature cannot be controlled.

Why has this happened to us
I think almost every natural disaster is always caused by human beings.
We have been destroying nature because we always seek better lives.
What should we do and what can I do?
What do you reckon

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. choke (in a newspaper)
= to be unable to speak normally especially because of strong emotion
2. ramp (on TV)
=
3. (in a newspaper)
