    I would like to say thank-you to all KC members who contacted me either personally or via other bulletins and forums. Your support while my parents were missing was greatly appreciated.

    My mother and father contacted me this morning, they are safe, their property is on the western side of the hill in Grantham, Sandy creek is less than 500metres from the property. thankfully the house is built on top of the hill and was well above the flood level, and thankfully they were both inside at the time it hit. They are both quite distressed a lot of the debris has been deposited in the paddock & the scene my mother described is quite graphic, the official toll will rise. They have elected to stay there, as they have generators and tank water and have opened their house to the family from the property below them, and are already busy helping to clean that families house.

    The town is still sealed whilst the body recovery and search takes place , but I will be heading down to them as soon as we are allowed in.

    thankyou again for the support and thank your deity's that they chose that property and not the other one they had looked at.
