11 Jan 11 - Thousands of people are being evacuated from Brisbane as floodwaters threaten Australia's third biggest city. 

'Today is very significant, tomorrow is bad, and Thursday is going to be devastating," said Brisbane Mayor Campbell Newman Newman.

Brisbane's main dam, which has so far protected the city from flooding, is full and authorities now have to release water which would send floods into the city, said Newman.    

It's feared the floods could be worse than 1974, when the Brisbane River flooded thousands of homes and killed 14 people.   

Workers deserted high-rise office towers in the centre of the city as constant rain continued to swell the Brisbane River.    

'It's taking on new proportions and getting worse by the minute,' said Gary McGowan, a businessman who lives and works in a western suburb of the city.
