Can you help out those hit hard by the Friday floods?

WHEN the water resides and the sunshine returns, the difficult task of rebuilding begins.

Friday night's devastating downpour that claimed five lives has been described as a one-in-2000-year event.

The deluge dumped more rain in some parts of South East Queensland than was recorded during the 2011 floods.

In the Caboolture area, 277mm of rain fell in just three hours.

The Queensland Premier yesterday announced South-East Queenslanders, who are mopping up after Friday's severe storms, will get hardship payments.

Those affected will get $180 per person to $900 per family.

For some, the money won't stretch far enough - they have lost everything.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has asked the community to dig deep and donate to those whose homes were flooded.

If you can spare some cash to donate, help out a fellow mate - we need to help them back on their feet.
