Old pal GR resides about 100 kilometers South of Brizzy (Brisbane, Australia), and he forwards this link to a video of some of the flooding the Aussies experienced on January 10, 2011.
The photographer is in an office building in Toowoomba overlooking what appears to be a drainage ditch. The ditch soon becomes a raging river overlapping the parking lot. Click to go directly to the Youtube site.
Toowoomba appears to be 126 highway kilometers West of Brizzy, according to this Google map.
Thanks, GR. Tie your kangaroo down, sport.
