    Don't be happy when others suffering.

    Natural disasters like floods are unavoidable but the necessary infrastructure should be in place to stop floods from happening like opening the sluice gates on time. what normally happens is the sluice agates re open when it reaches spill levels only. what should be done is the gates should be open when its nearing spill level only.

    Ronelu Tuesday, 11 January 2011 09:16 AM

    No one should go through things like this........be it a friend or a foe......

    Faqi Tuesday, 11 January 2011 05:43 PM

    Holman - What an idiotic statement. A natural disaster does not make a country a third world nation. Australia will take care of their citizens. They are not begging for aid for other countries.

    Labby Tuesday, 11 January 2011 09:35 AM

    Sam your comment is worth noting. Let's take a lesson from Maldives on their efforts to reduce carbon emissions worldwide.
