Queensland, Australia, Faces Devastating Floods

In 1974, the flooding Brisbane River of Queensland, Australia, peaked at 5.4 metres. It has been etched in local memory as the worst inundation the city and surrounding areas faced in the 20th century. Although the Brisbane River peaked just below the 1974 level on 13 January 2011, the damage has been far more targic and it is now the new point of reference for flood devastation.

This photo is taken on a floating cycle path on the Brisbane River in this capital city of the Australian state of Queensland. It is near the Story Bridge (on the way to Newfarm), which sometimes wriggles and contorts with the small waves moving under the pathway.
