    January 11 2011 - Brisbane CBD

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SkyeBris shot these photos Tuesday in the suburb of New Farm along the Brisbane River and says, 'Currently we are fortunate not to have been directly affected by the floods, however we are warned that by 8:30 am (it is now 5:40 am) they will have to start shutting down power to approximately 100,000 homes and businesses ... Another major issue is the panic-filled food and supply shopping that has occurred in our area and apparently throughout the city.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    First day of Brisbane city floods from New Farm, just outside of the city.  The tide just went down and the debris was apparent.  We are bracing for the worst floods in about 40 years.  The supermarkets are out of food and 100,000 businesses and homes will be cut from power from 8:30 am.
