    My phone is out. Does anybody know the death toll in Murphy's Creek? Last heard 2 dead but unconfirmed 5 more.

    EIGHT people have died in the flooding that swept through Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley and up to 72 may be missing.

    Premier Anna Bligh this morning said eight people had died in the floods and another 11 people are missing near Toowoomba, The 11 came from four homes in Murphys Creek.

    Much Relief for 2 elderly friends. They lived next to the creek in Withcott. Their house was completly submerged. Would you believe they went to Japan on Sunday. They won't have a house to return to, but at least they are alive.


    Prayers go out to the Murphy's creek communities.


    To the people in Ipswich and Brisbane. This Flood is serious ****. EVACUATE NOW! Don't meet your maker by staying in your house. Don't become a statistic!
