My sympathies go to both nationalities affected by the current flooding.
A very rough estimate taken from both links above:
It would appear that we have approx 3 times the land area under water, it
would also appear we have slightly less people affected by the flood waters
ours 200,000 theirs up to 20 million. I know where I prefer to live.
by my reconing as i was thee in 1991 the rocky flood has not as yet
peaked above the 1991 flood likethey have been saying, and as for the
others then i would have my doubts to the accuracy of the reporting,
as always the major impact is that they allow housing develpments to
take place on flood plains and reclaimed swamps and this pushes the
flood water into new area (never been flooded) so they are equation
this to extra flood height event.
some furphies going on me thinks.
look for the reaction of old ime locals they aren't in a flap as
they've seen or heard it all before.
