Brisbane Floods: Before and After. Brilliant gallery from the ABC showing aerial photos of Brisbane with a neat mouseover swipe effect. I had been thinking we were pretty lucky being in Sydney, but recently I found out that Sydney had floods in 1986. Unfortunately I can’t find any resources online that describe exactly which parts of Sydney suffered. Anybody know where I can find a floodplain map?!
Update: Shite. This story has a firsthand account from someone about the ’86 floods. “The only way I could get home (to the Inner West) was to walk. There were no buses, because much of Broadway was flooded, with water around 1 metre deep all the way from Railway Square to the intersection of City Road.” GREAT.
