9 Jan 10 - The devastating floods sweeping through Queensland have reached the outer suburbs of the state's capital Brisbane.

"It is not in the city at the moment but it is certainly going to increase over the next 24 to 48 hours," said Brett Harrison, a weather forecaster. "There is a possibility of moderate to major flooding for areas west of Brisbane."

Jeff Perkins, a senior hydrologist at the Bureau of Meteorology, said the Gold Coast south of Brisbane could face flash floods. Towns in the north of New South Wales are also bracing for the floods. "We have been getting up to 50mm [2in] in an hour. In an urban area the drainage system cannot cope," he said. "The Gold Coast is really susceptible to really heavy rainfall."
