The CBD was evacuated and the city has pretty much been shut down.
Here are some images I snapped earlier in the week.
A view across the river from the Schonell Bridge. The trees in the middle-ground are the river bank, so you can see the river has well and truly burst its bank. This was a day and half before the flood peak.
St Lucia Campus turned into swampland.
Here is a flooded carpark. The water has swallowed the first level.
Here is Melbourne St at West End, now a very large creek.
A view of the Kangaroo Point picnic area from the cliffs above.
View across to the CBD from South Bank. You can see the black pontoon caught against the pilons of the pedestrian bridge (around the middle of the photo).
