Australia is experiencing some crazy weather at the moment - here in Perth we have had our driest and hottest summer ever, and it isn't even over yet. Bushfires have just taken out homes south of our city - the most infuriating thing is they were deliberately lit.
But what is happening in Queensland at the moment is absolutely heartbreaking. The heavy rains and subsequent flooding have rendered an area the size of Texas (or France and Germany combined) underwater - and it's going to get worse.
