Toowoomba flash flood

Lives were lost in downtown Toowoomba, Qld on Monday Jan 10 when a 2 metre wall of water crashed through the CBD following saturating rain over the past few days.  We live outside of town, on the escarpment, but on a sloping block. We had some minor leaking of water into our work areas, and were lucky not to get it entering the house.  Here is the view from our dining room window after frantically digging drains on the upper part of the slope.
