Forlagets beskrivelse
Six years on from Queensland?s tragic ?inland tsunami?, this new edition of The Torrent reconnects with the survivors at the heart of the catastrophe. On January 10, 2011, after weeks of heavy rain and as floodwaters began to overwhelm much of southeast Queensland, a ?wall of water? hit Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley. The Torrent tells the extraordinary stories of survival and loss that emerged from that terrible day. Official figures state that twenty-four people died. Many escaped death only because they were rescued by members of the community or through sheer good fortune. Based on exclusive interviews with survivors, rescuers and with the families and friends of victims of the disaster, The Torrent is a unique and powerful account of human courage in the face of the devastating forces of nature. In this expanded and updated new edition, Gearing re-interviews the survivors to discover how they are getting on, recounts the traumatic findings of the Grantham inquiry, and captures the enduring and resilient spirit of the communities affected.
