Australia floods: New storm forecast for Queensland   [BBC news, 2 Jan]

A severe thunderstorm threatening flash floods has been forecast for the already badly inundated Australian state of Queensland.

More than 20 towns have already been cut off or flooded across an area larger than France and Germany, with more than 200,000 people affected.

Meanwhile, a woman swept from the road in her car has become the first victim of the widespread flooding.

At least two other people have been reported missing.

In some areas waters are receding, but in Rockhampton - a city of 77,000 - they have yet to reach their peak.

Floodwaters could reach nine metres (30 feet) on Monday and peak at 9.4 metres on Wednesday, it says.

The Bureau of Meteorology says a severe thunderstorm late on Sunday night will bring "damaging winds, very heavy rainfall, flash flooding and large hailstones" to areas including Charleville, Emerald and Blackwater.

This includes areas in the central Highlands which have been hit badly by the floods in recent weeks.

More than 1,000 blackbirds fall out of Arkansas sky  [BBC News, 2 Jan]

Officials are investigating why more than 1,000 birds - most of them dead - fell out of the sky in the US state of Arkansas on New Year's Eve.

Severe weather over Arkansas could be the cause of the mystery deaths

This is like something out of a Hitchcock horror film, Daisy.  Worse, even, because it has actually happened for real.  But why just Arkansas? Think:

^^ And the hungry crocs.  It's reckoned the poisonous snakes and crocs will be a major threat to the public, especially if they enter people's houses ...

I don't care to even think about it!  Urrrgh!!!

I was checking out Buhweet's favourite news channel, Al Jazeera, this morning, and they were showing how normal things are away from the water - town centre bustling with activity etc.  Amazing.  BUT ...  I absolutely loathe snakes ...

^^ I imagine you might get something closer to the truth on that channel.

Snakes?  Don't even mention the word!  I can't visit the reptile house at the zoo.  They make me feel all shaky and physically sick.

Better start praying, guys!

I can't believe the fireworks' theory.  If that were the case why didn't birds fall out of the sky after New Year fireworks in the UK, and in other parts of the world, not to mention the lengthy annual end-of-Festival extravaganza here in Edinburgh?  And why just this year?  Of course maybe the adverse weather conditions meant they were flying lower than normal?

As for the fish, that sounds like some disease like the awful ulcerative salmon disease I recall 40 years ago which virtually wiped out salmon stocks.  Holidaying in the north-west of Scotland, I saw rivers full of diseased and dying fish.  Horrible.

Spooky-wooky though. nervous



Snake risk for flooded Queenslanders

Flushed out by Queensland's rising flood waters, deadly snakes are on the move in the region's cities and towns.

There are also fears that crocodiles are now floating in flood waters. Residents have been advised not to enter the waters.

The Australian state of Queensland is home to some of the world's most venomous snakes, including the Common or Eastern Brown snake, the Coastal Taipan and the Death adder, as well as saltwater crocodiles - among the largest of the species, and a notorious man-eater.

But now some of these dangerous creatures are on the move and the likelihood that they will come into contact with humans is increased.

Venomous snakes are climbing trees, seeking cover in homes and outbuildings and trying to find higher, dryer ground, meaning that the same number of snakes will be present in a smaller area.

Crocodiles too are dispersing, the limits of their natural habitat now vastly expanded.
