Brisbane Floods - The Clean Up

With the commencement of the Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry, the inquiry has received more than 440 GB of information, which amounts to about six million printed pages. The year long inquiry will investigate the disaster, state's preparedness and response to widespread flooding, examining the dam operations and early flood warnings, particularly in the Lockyer Valley where more than 20 people died.
