The December 2010 / January 2011 Queensland floods refer to a series of floods in north-eastern Australia, primarily in the state of Queensland. The floods have resulted in the evacuation of thousands of people from the affected towns and cities [2]. At least 22 towns and over 200,000 people have been affected.[2] Damage has been initially estimated at around AU$1bn (650m).[3] Vast areas of Southern and Central Queensland were affected by the flood. Approximately 300 roads were closed, including nine major highways.[1] Coal railway lines were closed and numerous mine sites flooded. Fruit and vegetable prices have increased significantly as a result of the flooding.[4] A national appeal was established on 29 December, with both the state and federal governments giving AU$1 million each.[5]
