Mud and mold are creating a new nightmare for Queensland’s flooded tropics

Makayla Carter stands in the muddy ruins of her family’s home.

The stench from the piles of rubbish and broken things is overwhelming in the streets of Innisfail.

Neighbors went door to door, calling to help those cleaning their homes.

As the flood continued and widespread flooding began, a massive clean-up operation began.

Despite the destruction around her, Ms Carter kept her spirits up.

“We’re lucky we didn’t lose, so we’re happy about that,” he said.

“Before the storm, we did a big cleanup, so all the important stuff was already upstairs.”
