    I saw a news report on this terrible disaster today, Kazza. So very thankful that you are ok. I am so sorry that there is so much loss of life, and property. :( :(

    Death toll now stands officially at 131 - but it is growing hourly.

    I can't believe it, here the sun is shining the birds are singing and yet so many of my fellow Aussies have lost so much. The Victorian Premier nearly lost his own parents, so no-one can say he doesn't have some idea what they're going through.

    Our Deputy Prime Minister was just about in tears with the speech she gave to Parliament today.

    Just awful.

    yes, it is heartbreaking. Seeing some of the folk who had lost loved ones and their homes on the news last night made me cry....you can only imagine the grief they are going through.

    Missed a lot of this while i was in hospital and Mum kept it from me too but my Uncle (Mum's brother) lives in Springvale which by looking at google maps i have worked out at being only 40/50 miles away from Wandong which was on the news this morning.

    Very sad watching the footage.

    Prayers for everyone in Australia and special thoughts for Uncle Eric,Aunty Ruth and family.I know some of their friends and extended family have had to leave their homes :(

    A lady on one of my genealogy boards has lost her daughter, daughter's partner and the baby her daughter was due to give birth to in 8 days time.

    I don't know her personally but it is very sad to hear - it's so unfair.
