If it has reached that level in Suncorp, then this Church outside is in strife..

saw this on TBL's fb page as well and had a good laugh:

Richard Wilkins reporting, live from NZ, that the QLD floods may have been deliberately lit by arsonists.

Haven't heard back from my friend (who came with me to U2) since this morning, when she texted that the power had been cut off. I have another friend who lives in an apartment block in Toowong, where the water was chest high on the footpath this morning. I imagine she's not going anywhere in a hurry...

Where are Brisbane gonna play their remaining matches? Hope it drains in time for the A-League final, which Brisbane are very likely to host, as they have been far and away the best side in the league this season.

The thing with the floods is that while the bushfire just ripped through Victoria and did it's damage there and then, the floods are likely to be more lastingly devastating, particularly with the potential for all sorts of disease to be floating around.

apparently the turf farms around brisbane haven't been hit by the floods, so resurfacing the venue should be able to happen in pretty short order, once it empties out.

qualcomm stadium in san diego was flooded recently and they played an american football game on it a few days later, so a quick turnaround isn't out of the question.

I have been very (and surprisingly) impressed by the QLD government through all of this, everything's been done in a very professional and effective matter. It really could have turned out a lot more disastrous without good leadership. Hopefully there are no major deadly disease outbreaks in the coming weeks.

Apparently my old street in St Lucia was one of the worst hit in that neck of the woods.

meanwhile tony abbott is blithering on about the rain falling on the just and unjust, or something equally as retarded.

Well it appears parts of Vic are fucked now; but at least there's no more rain predicted. And thank god because if it rained steadily again we'd be fucked because we're literally 15-20 meters from floodplains. The Werribee river has "burst its banks" in some parts.
