Flood Waters by jo365

Flood Waters

The flooding around Australia continues. Last night and today many areas of Victoria suffered severe storms and flash floods. We had to take refuge at a friends house for a while as the rain fell heavily and many roads were closed due to water, fallen trees and fallen power lines. I had a couple of attempts to get back home only to be turned back by the SES (State Emergency Service). Finally my hubby came along some back roads until he could find a way to get Thomas and I back home. This photo was taken this afternoon near the end of our road. A couple of houses to the left of this were surrounded by water. Many roads are still blocked and more heavy rain is expected.
Flood waters can be so scary. I'm glad you and your family are safe!
