Australia Under Water - Tears a Plenty and Faith Tested
Victoria, Queensland and South Australia are just some of the States that have now been declared disaster zones.
As Queensland is now in clean up mode, other States / Towns are sitting and waiting, waiting to see if water levies will stay strong.
As a glimmer of hope, hundreds of volunteers are assisting home owners with the clean-up, something they could not do alone.
Images from media outlets tell a story, one such image which has been seen by millions around the world is of a family sitting on the roof of a car, being taken away by a torrent of water, whilst a helicopter hover's ahead.
This family of three told a story of despare and helplessness, tragically the father did not make it, he was swept away.
Queensland and much of Australia will take a long time to recover from this flood, only hope and and inner-strength will assist Australia through these terrible times.
