    All of a sudden a tremendous tempest from 23:00-05:00 am
    yesterday changed lives for ever.
    Power went out and all that could be heard was the noise of
    water falling and running. A real tragedy in the darkness.

    My prayers are with people in both areas suffering during these floods.

    I am fortunate that I live about 1,300 km. from the flood area in Australia. We are watching live TV footage each day and it is heartbreaking.
