Kirste and Dan had a chat with Tim Bain, from 96.5FM in Brisbane. He gave us some insight into the floods.

Authorities have been calling Brisbane’s weather a ‘rain bomb’. “We got a whole lot of water dumped on the city in the course of 3 days.” WA receives 790ml of rain annually. Brisbane received 1000ml of rain in just 3 days! On Saturday he helped push a car to high ground. “Where we pushed it to safety it had gone straight over the car’s roof.”

The team at 96.5FM had to broadcast from home. “We’re grateful we have access again now that the water has started to recede.” But in increased moments of pressure comes the power of community. “There is a spirit of compassion and support for each other.”
