Queensland floods

Thoughts

This post was originally just a shoutout with a quick link, but now I'm using it to put any links I find.

Description

Sending my thoughts out to the victims of the Queensland floods as they continue their march through Brisbane now. I lived there for a couple of years in the mid 1990s growing up, and seeing the photos people are sending in on Twitter with the #qldfloods hashtag of the flood waters over South Bank and the Riverwalk… its pretty scary :O. Hope you're all keeping safe, or as best as you can.

I'd advise putting your donations through Bing Lee stores, they're using the tragedy to get people to like their pages on Facebook. Does that count as looting?
