Flood details on 60,000 homes released
Information was released today on how floods affected 60,000 homes across Brisbane.
Sources of flooding, predicted flood levels, habitable floor levels and whether homes are located in a flood zone have been provided to the public.
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the report was written in a way that would improve customer comprehension and understanding.
“The report helps communities understand what Q100 is,” he said.
The report will be helpful to home buyers and people wanting to raise their homes.
“People will be able to see if flood water came into just a corner of a property,” Cr Quirk said.
The report will also show what “a one in 50 year event and a one in 20 year event might look like”.
