The Google Crisis Response team has produced what looks to be a very useful Google Map for anyone affected by the current flooding in Australia.
The map initially shows the levels of flooding but also includes a number of other layers. A layer showing Queensland road closures should be very useful for anyone in that area. There is also a layer to view the locations of evacuation centres.
The map includes two layers displaying third party data. One from ABC displays the towns and cities affected by the floods and another from SBS shows the worst affected areas.
