BUNDY RUM: Right now Bundaberg is facing the worst floods in its history. We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our staff and their families while monitoring the progress of the floods. So far the main distillery is intact, but like the people of Bundaberg, we are facing an unprecedented crisis. Our thoughts are with them and every other Queenslander affected by these floods. As always, we stand ready to help our community in this time of need and in the days and weeks to come. We will keep you posted as more as information comes to hand.
MARK GEYER: "Best wishes to those in QLD and Northern NSW who are under the pump, again, due to this rain. Sydney gunna cop it tonight. Stay safe."
Channel 9: "Tragically, a 3-year-old boy has died in hospital after being hit by a falling tree at Gordon Park. His mother is in a critical condition." Very sad.
Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale is a very happy man this morning - blue skies in Ippy with the river not peaking as high as expected.
