Tasmanians to Support Flood Victims

Senator Carol Brown, Labor Senator for Tasmania has urged all Tasmanians to keep the victims of the devastating floods in Queensland in their thoughts as the tragedy unfolds.

“Our thoughts go out to all those in flood-affected communities, to the families and friends of those who are still missing and to those who have lost loved ones.

“These floods are a human tragedy, destroying property and causing widespread devastation,” Senator Carol Brown said.

Senator Carol Brown also welcomed Tasmanian Premier David Bartlett’s commitment to match all money raised by Rotary dollar-for-dollar up to $250 000 and praised the 21 Tasmanian SES volunteers who will help with the rescue and safety efforts in the Toowoomba area.
