Your messages of support for flood-ravaged Queensland


More than a dozen people have died and many more have been forced to abandon their homes after severe flooding in the Australian state of Queensland.

All of the 13 confirmed deaths in this week's floods were in the Lockyer Valley and the nearby cities of Toowoomba and Ipswich.

Five deaths were in or near the small town of Grantham, which has a population of about 370.

The toll is likely to rise further, with authorities holding grave fears for 12 people, most of them from two families, who are still missing in the devastated valley community of Murphys Creek. A further 74 are reported missing.
