    I don't know if anyone's seen the disaster in Queensland but basically most of this Australian state is underwater. I don't live in Oz but I have friends there with family in the region and things are really bad.

    There are 5 million people in Queensland and the rain isn't letting up. In fact, it looks like it's going to get worse. The area that's been flooded is the size of France and Germany put together.

    Here's a link to a news report: http://video.au.msn.com/watch/video/toowoomba-latest-to-be-hit-by-floods/x5h6hi8

    You'll see other vids there

    It would be really nice if everyone could use their amazing skills and get the word out. They are accepting donations for the flood victims. I'm just going to include the link to the official site taking donations so maybe if you could tweet it and facebook it and everything I'm sure that the people out there would really be grateful.

    This is the link to the official governemt site: http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html

    It is a disaster, I watched it on News. It's more like Tsunami rather than a flood :(
