Floods not good

I feel sad and lost for words seeing the town (Charlton) I live for a lot of years under water. I still have family and friends there. You feel so helpless.

Talking to my Aunty last night and the had 18" in there shed. One room under water and and it hadn't peek yet. The town is on the Avoca River but she live a long way away from it, so there would be a lot more under before her.

Hope they are OK

edit: They have been evacuated. The Avoca goes through the town and they live on the high side and on the out skirts and they are flooded. So the rest of they town must be under even more. Worse than when it hit late last year.

I am amazed and saddened that there are so many stories of destruction around Australia. I hope that everyone is okay and the water doesn't rise anymore.

The news isn't good, water water everywhere. When people say Charlton you think hot, dusty, wool , sheep. Nice little town with the river running Through.
