All washed up

I received a text from my friend in Australia today - she lives near Brisbane:

"My parents will almost certainly lose their house. They are staying with my sister but even that is not safe - but no way out. My brother and his family are also stranded. The island is likely to flood by Thursday, but we have no way off. We will be OK, but the shop may not"

The floods in Australia are horrendous, and the death toll is rising daily as the rain keeps pouring down. The flooded area, I'm told, is the size of France and Germany - almost unimaginable.

So if you get a little moment...say a prayer
