If you're a person of faith then plaese spare some time to pray for the people of Queensland, Australia.

Severe flooding has effected 2 thirds of the state (and it's pretty big), and thousands of homes have been destroyed. The city of Brisbane is half under water. Brisbane is Australia's 3rd largest city, with a population of 1.7 million people.

16 people have been killed, and another 18 are missing, presumed dead. Australia is reeling at the devastation of our beautiful 'Sunshine State'.

Please Pray

Matt, I was thinking of you when I saw the video of the devastation on the news this morning. Of course we will pray.

Woah, what happened? (I rarely watch/read the news) Tsunami or something?

Will definitely pray for you guys. Are any of our Australian players in that area? Everybody OK?

Wow

Thanks for the responses guys. Basically these floods have happened because of totally excessive rainfall in Queensland. I don't think there are any SWM community members effected (hope I'm right), but my wife Kylie has family in Brisbane who we are worried about, last we heared they were OK though. When the levies were breached in a couple of places, people called what they were hit by an 'inland tsunami' and they had very little warning.

Thanks guys and God bless

Just an update that there is some pretty bad flooding in Victoria now, too. Nowhere near as widespread or devastating as the floods in Queensland, but still pretty bad and thousands of people in the North and Northwest of the state are affected.

Thanks again for the wonderful responses, guys.

Yes, I've been away from tv/internet for 48 hours, and the flooding in Victoria has gotten worse. Please include them in your prayers too guys.

you guys can pray for Rio de Janeiro too, almost 800 dead and still counting. Rains and mudslides destroyed the city of Nova Friburgo - a swiss colony - and have hit hard Teresópolis, Petrópolis and smaller cities from around.

Petrópolis was founded by Dom Pedro I, son of Dom João VI, who moved the portuguese royal family to Brazil to escape from Napoleon. Dom Pedro I was the first emperor of Brazil and Petrópolis (Peter's City) is considered the Imperial City. There are lots of museuns and historical buildings there. Teresópolis was named after his wife (Teresa's City). All that region was lovely, now it's just mud and tragedy.

Year after year these rain flood problems are getting worse in Brazil, and it's really sad to see our politicians complaining about what the last guy who occupied his place didn't do and to realize that we have the money for "painkillers" but never for a cure.

My thoughts are with everyone.

But WTF is wrong with 2011? 2 mass floodings, dozens of mass sudden animal deaths, etc.

Yes am praying, have family there but so far the floods have missed them, but getting closer.

It makes me a little mad that as a country the UK gives away millions, a lot more than most other countries do in aid, but when it comes to our friends an allies like Australia we have given nothing.

I hope that if there are any board members court up in this they are all safe.
