ROCKHAMPTON, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 06: A chinook helicopter with supplied flies over houses affected by flood waters on January 6, 2011 in Rockhampton, Australia. Floodwaters peaked at 9.2 metres yesterday in the central Queensland city just falling short of the predicted peak of 9.4 metres. Water levels are expected to remain high for at least a week, preventing residents from returning to their homes. The Queensland flood crisis has resulted in ten deaths and affected more than 200,000 people across an area as large as France and Germany combined. The flood bill is predicted to be upwards of AUD5 billion. (Photo by Jonathan Wood/Getty Images) less
