Are you referring to the man up in Lotus Creek that had his petrol station washed away CF?
That's completely horrible and I am not trying to say absolutely no one was affected. I just think it was sensationalised too much here in Rock Vegas.
I think it was all helped along by the politicians. I read about those helicopter pilots, using their own helicopters and paying for it themselves, distributing food and checking on people in the Lotus Creek and inland from Collinsville area.
No government offers of reimburing them, that has come from a charity organisation.
Meanwhile it was reported the government pays to have a police helicopter fly round Rockhampton township for a week for god knows what reason.
These disasters the "authorities" only seem to go after the large population areas even if it is a common event like the Rockhampton flood, and everyone else has to fend for themselves.
