Toowomba is screwed and Brisbane is next. They are evacuating heaps of suburbs, some highways shut and Brisbane city is about to get whooped.

Brisbane is looking very very bad!

They never expected such a large wall of water. Notice was incredibly minimal! Shipping containers, trucks etc floating down the road. Horrible stuff

it happened so quick, nobody knew it was coming. That's why there are so many casualties, missing people.
the creeks have been sitting fairly high since Christmas due to the high rainfall. But they never break the banks.
Within 3 minutes the creeks rose from 'normal' high levels to the raging torrents you see in the pics above. People were swept off their feet in the middle of the CBD because they just didn't know. It was described by the media as an inland tsunami and that's fairly much what it was!

My house is on a hill, but still ended up with a couple of inches of water through it from the runoff down the hill. We've had heavy rain here before, but I've never had any flooding problems before. The amount of rain that came down, in a relatively short period of time was unbelievable.
