At 6am in the morning, they woke up to people banging on the door and telling them to evacuate. Idoya quickly moved what she could up high, and packed a bag with a few clothes and their passports. Idoya then carried Fionn through waist high water to escape. Their apartment is at the bottom of a slope and close to the river, so was completely inundated. None of their personal belongings were salvageable, and without insurance the pair now need to find a new home and start from scratch.Idoya is concerned about the increasing frequency of weather events like these. "I worry for my sons future and the impact global warming will have on this planet. The Government needs to do more to stop gas emissions and look at renewable resources rather than gas."Locations:Australia-Brisbane-OceaniaDate:4 Mar, 2022Credit:© Tammy Law / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5472px X 3648pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Day-Floods-Houses-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Mothers-One person-VictimsShoot:Clean up after Floods in Brisbane, AustraliaBrisbane residents describe their experiences of recent floods after a record-breaking 792 millimetres of rain fell on the city within three days, impacting an estimated 15,000 homes. In late February and March 2022, intense rainfall and floods affected millions of residents in Queensland and New South Wales, causing devastating loss of life and an estimated AUD$5billion worth of damage. Greenpeace Australia Pacific has long advocated for a climate compensation fund paid for by the coal, oil and gas companies whose activities are fuelling the climate crisis and the ensuing increase in destructive extreme weather events like these floods.
