Water water everywhere in Queensland and not a drop to drink in Northern Ireland

It seems strange that there is widespread flooding in Queensland (peak flood hits today I understand) but there is a water shortage in Northern Ireland.

The world is a big place but with global comms and rolling 24hrs international news it seems we get to hear about these extreme weather related events around the globe with increasing regularity. With climate change such weather events will perhaps become ever more common occurrences too. I guess technology such as ADAS’ leading flood risk mapping software can help people at least try to build on areas at a lower risk of flooding.

Conversely in water shortage / drought prone areas governments and utilities need to invest more in upgrading pipe networks and de-salination plants to insure continuity of supply.
