THE Toowoomba CBD has been left a virtual ghost town with the centre in total lock-down.

With the prospects of more severe flooding, all roads in and around the CBD have been closed with police telling business owners to secure their premises and move out of the area.

As the rain continued to fall a few brave residents were wandering the empty streets in a state of shock at the widespread devastation and loss of life.

Areas below Margaret Street, including Russell, Ruthven and Campbell streets were left decimated when the tsunami-like flash floods descended on Toowoomba yesterday.
