Sorry I can't be more specific I'm a little pre-occupied having looked at the creek backing onto our place ... much packing and backing-up photos
Hope everything is OK for you and your family, stay safe and let us know as soon as everything is OK. Thinking of you mate.

Just a preliminary pack of the car just in case ... don't want to forget something vital ... like kid or dog

We should be right but I'd rather be packed and ready than not ...

It's fair to say the appeal of the rain is diminishing.

Ta, it's just making sure if we need to shift we can at the moment.

Tothe lady worried about Caboolture, it has a couple of really low points, one being the big duck pond area near the centre of town. The partner ran a big project there and it was not uncommon for water to be over the roads . I know this rain is far worse than usual but I think Caboolture is one place that would have been well aware and therefor prepared, as well as one can be in this weather.

Just beware...take care even if the maps shows no creek or overland flood.

I once ended up driving in a flash flood in Carina in heavy rain, rapidly rising water and engine cut out...on the map for that road, nothing.

Should add, even though we are not flooded, there seem to be real problems with the phones. Home, business and mobile lines all troublesome this morning.

The rain guage at home - 210mm so far since 6 am, and it was overflowing so probably more than that.

Driving round this morning, all the usual troublespots where there is a low dip in the road have road closed signs, like BC said these can be in areas which are not flood prone.

Waiting at work for my back to school delivery, got on to my supplier in Wynnum to find out they'd been evacuated and she's at home but has no idea where my delivery is because the transport department don't have access to their tracking system. Didn't realise Wynnum would be in trouble.

They managed to get her and a luckily home, just in time. I now have a friend out there who is only 19 and on her own and has no idea what to do, I wish I knew she was still there or I would have told the BIL to get her too. I've given her the emergency line number and told her that if she feels she is in danger to call them, tell them where she is and get on the roof but I also told her that I didn't think it would get that bad there but to listen to the radio.

I hope this has been the right advice.

Lot of people sent home now - just in case. Wynnum probably just getting the usual localised flooding just like other parts of Brisbane - nothing overly serious in most parts at the moment I think. Just the one's reported, caboolture area. A massive almost full dam, constant rain and the catchment filling up just puts you on edge

Wivenhoe Dam
Releases through five gates have been increased to 344,000 megalitres as at 1.00pm and may need to be increased to around 516,000 megalitres a day by Wednesday 12 January due to rainfall in the Stanley and Upper Brisbane.


516,000 ML is about 3 times all the water that Wivenhoe held back in the day (2007) when I was convinved we would run out of water!
