Canadian astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield, photographed the 2013 Queensland floods while passing over central Queensland in the International Space Station. Here's what he tweeted: @Cmdr_Hadfield: You can see the floodwaters pouring straight through Bundaberg and into the ocean. Keep safe and dry down there!
Evacuations in Bundaberg. This street is not far from where I used to live. I heard someone say "We look like refugees!" when I first saw this photo. I had reply, "Well, that's because we are..." Refugees do not only come from oversees, nor do they have to be escaping wartorn countries... Refugees are simply people in need of a refuge.
