Quote from: ozbob on September 03, 2012, 15:57:22 PMThe Kawana site is only a metre or so above sea level. It is a cyclone risk area as well, experiences in New Orleans resulted in patients being left to die. Inundation will put at risk patients lives, as power would be lost.We know they botch transport infrastructure on a grand scale, but heck this is just madness this location for a hospital.
