Water, water everywhere...

I'm a little bit concerned.

I grew up in St George, in outback Queensland. Mum and Dad retired to the coast some years ago, but my brother Glenn still lives out there (and bought Mum and Dad's house).

St George is currently experiencing it's worst flood in over 120 years.

Luckily Glenn is currently visiting Mum and Dad on the coast (where it is also very, very wet) so he's not there, but it's still worrying me.

The Balonne Shire Council earlier today released a map of the evacuation area. St George isn't that much bigger than that total map area. Technically Glenn's house is included in the risk area (He lives on the corner of Alfred and Howe Streets in the top right of the map, right where the big thick black line goes). If the water ends up any where near his house, the town is in serious trouble.
