After spending the night in a hotel in the city as I was not able to get home via the trains, I jumped at the chance of getting a lift home from some friends. I didn't want to take the trains as they all have major delays and there is only a few of them anyway.

Even though Brisbane is flooded, they still have to release more water. The dam is currently at 190%. At 200% the water will just start to spill over the top of the dam and is in danger of destroying the dam, so yes I can see that they need to still release the water.

12 are dead at the moment. And there are still at least 43 people missing.
My thoughts are with all the people that have been flooded and my heart goes out to those have lost someone and have people they know that are missing.
I was in shock most of yesterday, and I think I still was a little today. And I have to admit I do feel a little guilty that we are safe & dry when so many are helpless and homeless at the moment.
And yet I still need to go to work tomorrow so we can try to get as many people as possible to were they need to go.
