Queensland, Australia (Website for this image).
In 1974, Cyclone Wanda brought serious floods to Brisbane.
On 11 January 2011, we learn that "Brisbane could be about to experience its worst flood since the catastrophic 1974 event, when at least 6700 homes were partially or totally flooded in the Brisbane metropolitan area." (Death toll rises as deluge hits Brisbane)
Some would say these are the worst floods since 1893.
There has been more than a month of rain in Queensland.
Nine people are dead and more than 70 are missing.
Cyclones bring rain to Queensland.
Anonymous drew our attention to the idea that the floods are the result of Kevin Rudd speaking out against Israel.
Kevin Rudd "not only called on Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but said it should open all its nuclear facilities to UN inspectors." (Are the QLD floods the result of Kevin Rudd speaking against Israel.)
Receiving the honorary 'Order of Australia' in 2010 were Richard Armitage and Michael Hayden, former boss of the CIA boss. They were honoured for increasing intelligence cooperation. (Former CIA boss gets Order of Australia.)
Retired Gen. Michael Hayden, who led the CIA from 2006 to 2009, said issues such as energy and water made Bush's daily briefings. (Why the CIA is spying on climate)
