Pisasale: Ipswich again on a flood-footing

IPSWICH Mayor Paul Pisasale has again advised that Ipswich is on a flood-footing following more rain in the catchments overnight.

Council is now gearing up to open two evacuation centres later this morning.

"We will advise the locations when the doors open," he said.

"If you are in a known low lying area and can self evacuate, please start preparations now.

"I want to stress that we do have a little more time on our side compared to 2011, and the level will be 4 or 5 metres lower than 2011.

"The flood peak for the Bremer in Ipswich is predicted for midnight or later tonight, and the Brisbane River at Goodna likely to peak Wednesday morning.

"Again, levels will be lower than 2011, but no less distressing for those in the predicted flood zone," he said.
