Due to the breakup of former Tropical Cyclone Oswald, Queensland has been inundated with rainfall and heavy storms in most parts of the state from Central Queensland south to the New South Wales border.
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued several advisories and the many State Members of Parliament, City Councillors from Logan, Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Moreton Bay I have been in contact with directly are reporting over 14,000 homes affected by power loss in the greater Brisbane alone.
Weather modelling from an old school mate of mine at BOM says a number of areas will be hit by flash flooding. Official reports coming through are also saying Ipswich will be flooded at Goodna with the possibility, although not certainly, January 2011 flood levels.
Now for the bad news - Brisbane City has been confirmed that it will flood again. The good side is that it's anticipated to be 5 metres < 2011 levels. While anything is bad, those who were there in the aftermath of 2011 will agree with the comparison.
We have several players in the mix of this and I know some who may not have transport if they get stuck, broke down or need assistance. If yas need a hand - shout out. Some players have my cell phone number - call if you need day or night.
