Default Queensland Floods Relief Appeal

There is no river there at all, just a road with a small creek. Here is video from Toowoomba Flood video on you tube 4 days after.

The whole world watched in horror at the images in my first video as an unprecedented flash flood washed away an entire car park in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
Watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYUpkP...

I returned to the car park at East Creek today to film this appeal to show you that my tiny creek really is just a tiny creek. It gives incredible perspective to the huge torrent that it became.

You've seen the devastation - now contribute to the relief effort. The floods have caused untold damage throughout 75% of Queensland. It will cost billions of dollars to clean up the destruction and rebuild essential infrastructure, buildings, homes and communities.

Can you just clarify please, as the wording and links appear cut'n'pasted from You Tube - is this your own video, filmed by yourself at the time? I ask mainly because we have members in that area who will be interested in "├┐our" footage, and in the fact that you were there at the time.

Thanks

Also your instruction to 'watch here' leads to a malformed video.
