now i know this is a few days old but has been a little difficult. i have family out there who were right in the middle of it. all are ok, but one of my cousin's colleagues was killed trying help other people. my cousin was right there helping get people out too, and she's doing shifts on Welfare. she actually works in council's infrastructure dept so will be damned busy... aunt and uncle were at a petrol station at the time. HOW it didn't get blown up is anyone's guess. so please scuse the odd sniffle when no one's looking.
