THE MASSIVE AUSTRALIAN DROUGHT
Serious Fires And Flooding in N S W. Now Massive Drought in Queensland.
Powerful fires raged in New South Wales beyond any human means of control during 2013. This has become an all to common experience for those living in endangered areas.
It is difficult to grasp the force an exploding eucalyptus forest stretching over thousands of acres can have, and the devastation which is caused! Our hearts go out to those in harm’s way forced to experience such destruction and possible loss of life!
Earlier in 2013 without relief from bush fires the Australian people were hit with the second year of extreme flooding, from Bundaberg north of Brisbane in Queensland, as a severe weather pattern moved all the way down the East coast to Newcastle and Sydney in New South Wales causing massive flooding.
Australia, which suffers periodic drought in that difficult region of the world was deep in drought in 2014. The huge state of Queensland, as large as France and Spain combined is 80% in drought and will only produce 40% of the normal food supply. Much of the nation’s beef cattle are grass fed on the open range, much of which was exported overseas.
In these times of increasing upset weather conditions please remember those living in these tropical climates who often suffer such tragedies when emergency services are overwhelmed with one disaster after another, and the general population is left without any help and must find a way to survive the elements alone!
