Soz, just been sat here gobsmacked by it all, absolutely devastating. Two people dead, one is a child, I just hope they're not an ex-pupil as I'd not be able to cope with that at all!!! Others still missing, I just hope they're found alive!!!

They'd probably not let me help out til I've had training, I just would like to get involved in the immediate clean up as there will be so much to do! I won't be ringing them just yet as I'll probably just piss them off when they're probably still out searching for people!

I heard that locals were helping the ses clean houses up north so they may be able to use you when the cleanup starts.

Cool, apparently we're due even more rain, so the cleanup might not start just yet...

A friend is moving house and has shedloads of excess good quality furniture she's trying to donate to anyone. Now I know it's early days and many places are still badly flooded but both Vinnies and the Salvos are saying no, don't want it, won't want it, take it to the dump. She's very peed off understandably but hasn't got anywhere to store it on the off chance that someone will need it.

Thanku, I'll not deny I'm quite scared, crying thinking about it all and just read that there's now four confirmed dead and lots more missing. Also read that police are reportedly pulling bodies out of cars in the CBD, I really hope this isn't true! It was just so unexpected, that's why it's been so bad! SHOCKING!!!

Sadly, judging by some of the video footage, I'd say it's true. In such a terrible event, it would be amazing that there wasn't loss of life. Stay dry and safe hon.

Oh Jen, I had my hands to my face watching the news in horror as those cars were being washed away with people inside them. It's absolutely horrible.
