We’re all seeing lots of footage from the air and around and about the inner city suburbs of Brisbane, so seeing as I live in one of the western suburbs that hasn’t been affected at all I took the chance today to get out and grab some footage of local suburbs to me that have been affected. I also swung by Kangaroo Point where the nation’s media has setup their outside broadcast units to see how they’re doing. Variously successful is the answer to that.

Thousands of people have been affected by this flood incident – you’ll see some on the video (even though I got around as the water had dropped by at least a metre). The waste that the water collated, the detritus of life. Now in our streets and backyards. We’re one hell of a mess to clean up.

If you’re able to, and you’ve not donated already – please do: The Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal.
