Severe weather event hitting SE Queensland

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-01-2...se-qld/4485978

Tornadoes have ripped roofs off houses near Bundaberg and are heading south towards Brisbane. It is the remains of Tropical Cyclone Oswald, which didn't peter out but picked up more water, and has been steadily dumping in on SEQ.

The bridge near my house still has a foot to go before it goes under. I'll keep you updated and post photos if it goes under.

MSG posted a bit about this at theorama. Stay dry, Aden.

ETA: Crap, you've got a messed up back as well. Don't try to rescue any drowning kangaroos or dropbears, okay?

So far so good. I wrecked my back over the last couple of days and movement is a killer so I hope we don't need to do anything.

Four days of radar images:

That's a lot of rain and wind.

Think diva gave you some advice about the back. I recommend taking it, she seems to really know what she's talking about.

Thanks. I'm slouched on the couch in the only position that allows me to breathe without a sharp pain. It's halfway up my ribcage on the left hand side. A little triangle of pain that has pulled everything out of shape and turned me into an S.

I'm scared to try diva's solution because I don't have any core strength at the moment.

Is it a muscle spasm or a pulled muscle, Aden? They both hurt. A lot.

The river came up over the bridge yesterday afternoon but was down by 9pm. The local park is a mess but it always is after a flood. The sun is out and the ground is drying.

Better but still crap. I was hobbling around with a walking stick yesterday. Woke up every time I needed to move. But better. At least it isn't seizing up completely and sending me to the floor.

Ow. I have so much sympathy. I did my back in seriously years ago, couldn't even sit for two weeks, let alone stand. Took months to heal. But it did heal!

currently having to airlift 1000 people off their rooftops in the central Queensland town of Bundaberg, which is experiencing the worst flood ever recorded there.

reports are the flood peak in Brisbane will be a couple of metres lower than January 2011 so considerably less damage there

A 3 year old boy died in hospital this evening after being hit by a falling tree this afternoon. It seems like his family went to Kedron Brook to look at the stormwater and a tree fell on him and his mother. Poor kid. And poor family.

ETA: mother, not father.

Very sad.

We are so fascinated by extremes of this sort, floodwaters, lightning storms, hurricanes, tornados - I know I've taken at least minimal risks to gawk at natural events when I should have rationally been indoors being safe.

I think we're going to get our fill of these extreme weather events. This is the new normal.

I'm afraid you're right.

It's been ten years now, but every year since Hurricane Juan hit NS, we've paid serious attention to developing hurricanes, something we never did before. An anomaly, perhaps, but I think possibly a warning of the new 'normal'.

Quote:
The hurricane [Juan, Sept. 29, 2003 ]inflicted extensive damage across central Nova Scotia and into Prince Edward Island, with lesser damage east and west of the storm centre. Most of the damage occurred as a result of the intense winds that buffeted the region. Juan's passage resulted in 8 fatalities and over CA$300 million (US$200 million) in damage. It was described as the worst storm to hit Halifax since 1893.

....

Hurricane Juan has also resulted in several changes to the Meteorological Service of Canada's Canadian Hurricane Centre, which has relocated from a vulnerable and exposed location in an office building in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, to a more secure location that can withstand hurricane damage. CHC's hurricane warning system has also been improved; traditionally, CHC did not issue standard hurricane or tropical storm watches or warnings, just high wind and heavy rainfall warnings, which were often not heeded by local residents. Beginning in the 2004 Atlantic hurricane season, CHC began using standard hurricane warnings for storms potentially affecting Canada.[36] Canada issued its first hurricane warning in 2008 in anticipation of Hurricane Kyle and in 2009, issued its second hurricane watch in anticipation of Hurricane Bill.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Juan
ETA: It was grimly funny when people working in the Hurricane Centre began reporting that damage to the building they were in was becoming so severe that they would have to evacuate.
