Default Earthquake in Broadmeadows (north Melbourne)

Subject: Hurricane Appeal



A major hurricane (Hurricane Shazza) and an earthquake measuring 5.8 on the
Richter scale hit Broadmeadows in the early hours of Friday with its
epicentre in Johnstone Street, Broadmeadows. The hurricane decimated the
area causing approximately $30.00 worth of damage.

Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly, muttering "Faaackinell".
Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals were
woken well before their centre link cheques arrived.

The Hume Leader reported that hundreds of residents were confused and
bewildered and were still trying to come to terms with the fact that
something interesting had happened in Broady.

One resident - Tracy Sharon Smith, a 15-year-old mother of 5 said "It was
such a shock, my little Chardonnay-Mercedes came running into my bedroom
crying. My youngest two, Kevin and Jason slept through it all."

Apparently looting, muggings and car crime were unaffected and carried on as
normal.

The Australian Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of
Bacardi-Breezers to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are
still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of
personal belongings, including Health Care Cards, also Jewellery and Bone
China from Big W.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing parcels for those
unfortunate enough to be caught up in this disaster.

Clothing is most sought after - items most needed include: baseball caps,
tracksuits, singlets (blue & white) white sport socks, Reebok boots Any
other items usually sold at Dimmy's or The Reject Shop.

Food parcels may be harder to come by, but are needed all the same.
Required foodstuffs urgently needed include: Microwave meals, Baked beans,
Ice cream, Chips, Fizzy drinks.

Donations $15.00 will be taken to buy a packet of Winny blue 25s and a
lighter to calm the nerves of those affected.

**Breaking news**

Broadmeadows Uniting Church has cancelled their local "Nativity Display"
due to their inability to find three wise men or a virgin.

'tis a lovely place for sure.

Maybe proceeds from the sale of Broadmeadows Monopoly should go to the disaster fund too!
