Dramatic Videos of Australian Flash Flood

 I saw scenes similar to this on September 12, 1977 near The Plaza- torrential rainfall that sent a virtual tsunami of water down Brush Creek.


In the videos here- the Queensland town of Toowoomba in Australia suffers a lethal flash flood as more than 6-inches of rain falls in 30 minutes upstream of the town.

At least 20 people have died with more than 70 missing as floods equal or exceed records set back in 1974- and threaten Australia's 3rd largest city- Brisbane.
