I’m sure you all heard about the devastation caused by tropical cyclone Marcia a few days ago. By the time it reached Brisbane, it had been downgraded to the status of a low pressure system. While part of me was disappointed for the lack of dramatic photo opportunities, I was still pleased that all Brisbanites had to deal with was a whole lot of rain and a little flooding.
I popped down to the area around Deshon Street in the Brisbane suburb of Woolloongabba to check out the flooding in that part of town. Thankfully it was very minor.
Here’s the photos…
While Brisbane escaped largely unscathed, the same cannot be said of the towns in Central Queensland like Rockhampton, Biloela and Yeppoon, where Marcia was still a category 3 or above cyclone when it passed through. Our thoughts are with anyone who has been affected by the disaster. We certainly got off lightly down here in Brissie!
