Overall, 75 towns have been affected and over 200,000 people! About and 11,000 homes have water damage. Businesses also have been affected by the flood. About 80 businesses had water damage in Gympie, a city with a population of about 16,000 people.

Australia has had poor in the past 40 years! It has had wildfires in 2009 and a series of natural disasters in the 1970s. Australias people have been affected by all of the natural disasters I just said, but we cant just say that the people are getting affected by this. Plants and animals have also been affected by the flood.

Australias kangaroo population is at record lows. About half of their population has been wiped out by the rains. Better yet the Great Coral Reef is getting to much freshwater and is destroying it., and it is a great fishing spot and tourist attraction. So now the affected Reef is affecting the citizens of Australia. Researcher Michelle Devlin stated, This is a really massive event. It has potential to shift the food wed, it has potential to shift how the reef operates. Many different species of fish and other marine animals are getting extinct because of the lack of food. Lots of money is being spent and people want to prevent any future floods.

For three months rain has pounded down on the people and wildlife of Australia. Most of the rain hit Queensland and neighboring towns and cities. Acting Regional Mayor Tony Perret said, The water was 5 feet deep on Monday, January second, as I flew over a hotel. The flooding location was rather bizarre in a couple of ways. One way was that Queensland is pretty far inland, but then again rivers could overflow and caused it. Also the way the flood reached Queensland got citizens surprised. One man said, Now it is time to be checking on neighbors and the elderly of this unexpected flood.

And Queenslands government wants you to help. The government asks for donations and volunteers to help the citizens affected by the flood. Federal Opposition Treasury Spokesman Joe Hockey said, If you want to keep Australias economy strong, you cannot keep taking a baseball bat to Australian households with more taxes. That is how desperate Australias economy is. Australias floods may be as disastrous as the earthquake in Haiti, but Queensland government needs money to rebuild, so citizens can go back to their normal lives.
