New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2011
Leavingthebigapple principals decided to step up to the plate when they heard the prime minister of Australia "asked for help from friends" on the BBC World News.
We wanted to help as many people as we could in the best way that we could said leavingthebigapple's volonteers.
The floods have caused 26 deaths in Australia's Northeast since late november and 28 others are missing,most of them from a flash flood that hit the towns west of Brisbane.More than 30.000 homes and businesses in the state capital were flooded,and the mayor said complete clean-up of the city would take months and contruction up to two years.
An economist has estimated the Queensland floods cost could be as much as $13 billion or 1 percent of gross domestic product.
In Brasil the death toll from the disaster was over 600.It was feared more bodies were yet to be discovered as rescuers finally arrived in village cut off because of destroyed roads and bridges in the region.
Efforts to locate survivors and bodies were taken under the risk of further mudslides,as rain continued to fall on the waterloged region,making it even more instable.
