"Fully revised and updated"--Cover.

Includes bibliographical references.

“On 10 January 2011, after weeks of heavy rain, a wall of water hit Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley. Official figures state that over 20 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 the families and friends of the victims of the disaster, The Torrent is a unique and powerful account of human courage in the face of devastating forces of nature. This expanded edition provides updates on the survivors, recounts the traumatic findings of the Grantham inquiry, and captures the enduring and resilient spirit of the communities affected.”--Back cover.
