It is hard to try and sum up what has happened in Qld with some of the worst floods in over 50 years and in some places ever on record. Brisbane in general managed to avoid the worst of the floods with just some pockets of area affected. The best way so far, to describe the the event is by posting a  news article from "The Courier Mail."

So much has happened and so many affected. Between the cost of property damage, infrastructure, insurance and now the rising price of food we are all going to feel the effects for a long time to come. The other problem that still haunts us is there is still a strong chance of heavy rain and tropical cyclones working their way down the coastline over the next 2 months. We are not out of danger yet.

This is the article so far that best sums up the flood crisis in Qld;

Sorry about the late reply on this event but on Boxing day i videoed an intense and tight cyclonic rotation in the sqaull line that passed over Penrith. It was brief but very impressive rotation.
