TOWNSVILLE FLOODING - should federal gov give more support to QLD then overseas??

By bluejean . Created on 10 Feb, 2019
So in light of the recent monsoonal disaster in Townsville causing extensive damage to home and loss of life, should the government provide more funding than the $1000.00 to people who have lost all of their belongings and extensive damage to home - some completely under and animals lost. i am from Townsville and saw it first hand - while people are resilient, there are a lot of people who are totally broken - how can you ever feel like your house is ever safe again? why were so many new estates built on flood plains?

there is regular rainfall up north and sometimes flooding. Why cant they divert this excess water to the drought stricken areas of QLD or NSW instead of it going out to sea and ruining the Reef with all the mud and slush. Come on Government there needs some brains in charge!!! Don't waste millions on overseas give it back to the country!!!

Julie this is so well said. Unfortunately there does not appear to be that many brains in Government at the moment - it is all about themselves. Agree with your solution and the money needs to be given to Australia not overseas. I do not know who gives us money for stricken areas such as QLD or NSW. Take care.

Am from Townsville so I know first hand what has happened here was a disaster. The government needs to look after their own first instead of giving money overseas.

It Certainly is more important to look after the flood victims and any home disaster first. There is only ever assistance of any sort from New Zealand otherwise.
