The more images you see, the more stories you hear, the more accounts you read, the more the scope of this disaster just gets more and more overwhelming. The area of flooding is astronomical – on about Tuesday I heard it was about the size of Germany and France combined – who knows how large it is in comparison now. And look at any weather map and you’ll see this little pocket of Australia is about the only area not soggy. The AIA has set up a blog for members (and hopefully non-members too!) to offer support and practical assistance to those members affected. Emergency Architects Australia are offering assistance to any Queensland residents needing assistance – check out their website for you can be involved. Donate (funds only) to the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal here. Archicentre has also set up a ‘triage’ assessment process for assessing damage to properties affected by the flood.
