Apparently earlier this year, on my birthday to be exact, the Australian town of Kellick Creek experienced a flash flood. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on whether you happen to be an optimist or on your way to suicide) someone happened to have a video camera handy and captured the flash flood on tape. Iâ€™d heard the term flash flood before; living in the flattest province in the country, flooding of any sort is always on the minds of its residents. I had no idea just how flash-y they meant.
You can literally see the wave coming from what looks like a hundred yards away, as it rushes through a â€œvalleyâ€, destroying everything in its path.
