Looters arrested

AS Toowoomba reeled from the massive surge of floodwater that decimated the CBD yesterday three people were arrested for looting in Russell Street.

The area in and around Ruthven Street and Chalk Drive was worst hit and classified a disaster zone as floodwater in excess of two metres smashed the area causing widespread damage to businesses and vehicles.

Witnesses said the floodwater arrived with such ferocity, they only had “seconds” to move to safe ground otherwise they risked being consumed by it. There is grave concern for the Allied Mills silos with the power of floodwaters causing damage to the building's structure.
