Flood Flag Maps for Brisbane City area
The BCC has now put up a temporary site of their own so you can access the maps and other important flood info! Try going there first (if it's working)
All maps are now available. If you have any questions, please email me: greg [at] lexiphanic.com
What are these maps, exactly?
These maps were sourced from the Brisbane City Council website linked above before it went down. I am not responsible for the information in them or any damages/losses you may experience as a result of trusting them.
These maps are projections of how water will flow during heavy rainfall / flood conditions in your suburb. They are not maps of current water levels!
Look at the map legend to interpret the colours.
Overland Flow Path means "Overland flow is the excess run-off during high rainfall events that travels overland following low-lying, natural drainage paths. Such flooding commonly occurs when underground drainage exceeds capacity."
Maps are ONLY for Brisbane City Council. Other councils do not produce maps. See below this list for some help with other locations.

How can I help?
DONATE to the flood relief appeal!
If you do only one thing, do that.
Please remain calm
Please don't panic and be sure to respect your fellow Brisbane residents who are just as worried as you are.
This is a time to band together and help each other out. Be sure to look out for one another, ok?
