My Name is Di and i am in fernvale Qld. We were one of 100 who were flooded in this town. we were all shocked and are still amzed on how little fernvale got mentioed. I have only ever seen pics on facebook of the floods here besides living it. Never seen it on telly, though i haven't been able to watch it. I kept all 3 of my boys away from the telly so they did not become more upset from the event. We have 1.4m of water through the house. Lost alot which the boys have been upset by. The go to ask for something and then realise that we don't have it anymore.
Its 11 weeks on and we haven't heard from Insurance We are with RACQ and there are 3 of us in my street alone with them. neighbours with allience and comsure have not been covered. Suncorp is paying but also people are still waiting for their money from them. we are paying for everything ourselves. I am not working but have had to do all work on the house as hubby has busted his back and now has 2 bulding discs and cannot do anything. Some of our friends are comming down to help us put walls up easter weekend as we don't have $3000 plus to pay someone to do it and plaster. Then we will have to paint as well. Not to metion skirting and furniture and vanities. the list is endless.

The flood were massive every where and everyone  were effected in some way. It makes me made when miss bligh won't pay people.

Thought a personal insight might make a difference somewhere.
