News update from Oz - 14 Jan 2011.

Just as Queensland is cleaning up from Australia's biggest natural disaster the states of Victoria and Tasmania are experiencing floods caused by a weather system stretching down the east coast. Normally at this time of year Victoria receives zero rain and faces brushfires. The top of NSW was threatened but the threat is easing. Oz is currently surround by 3 cyclones and 2 of them are on the east side - Mother Nature at her worst!. The Queenslanders have their beloved XXXX (Four X) Beer Co. back in production - we have priorities people!
