Publishers Description: This book is a memento to all who suffered pain and loss during the worst and most wide spread flooding that has ever occurred throughout Queensland. The big wet of Summer 2010/11 brought flooding on a cataclysmic scale to Queensland. Our nation watched in disbelief and horror as flood waters ravaged the countryside, indiscriminately invading homes, ruining livelihoods and shattering the dreams of thousands. FLOOD HORROR AND TRAGEDY captures the magnitude of destruction unleashed by nature and the resultant human anguish through collection of phenomenal, firsthand accounts from survivors and witnesses. Readers will empathize with the unfortunate, grieve with the bereaved and stand in awe of the emergency services personnel and many selfless others who laid their own lives on the line in order to pluck strangers and friends to safety. An exhaustive collection of real life horror and tragedy, told in emotional heart rendering accounts and previously unpublished photographs. Stories of heroism, survival, near death experiences and devastating loss, of both lives and possessions.
