Weather / Flooding Links for NSW & QLD

After recently relocating to the Southern Gold Coast, I’m smack dab in the middle of a major weather “event” where rain and flooding have been the order of the day for over the past week. And after a minor respite for Australia Day… it has returned on 27th January 2011 for another go at us all!

I’ve been trying to find info on the ‘net about this event to see what’s been going on… and have compiled this list of links to help people from South Eastern Queensland, Gold Coast and all the way down the NSW North Coast find, accurate information about the current state of affairs regarding flooding and road closures in their local area.
