Sorry for the delay in the posting of this message, Its just something i’ve been continuously putting off.
Theres not much i can really report on the topic, So if you’ve got anything specific, feel free to leave a comment and i’ll see if i can dig up the information for you.
The Bureau of Meteorology was nice enough to send me over the river height details for Kyogle/Wiangaree from the 1st of Jan, to 11th of Jan 2008, So for those interested, I’ve put together a graph:
Some points used in the data on the above graph were interpolated from the data given to create a smooth line due to the data for river levels at certain times being missing(I guess they had more important things to do than measure the water level every few minutes :)). The raw CSV data is available upon request.
Current(and previous) News is indexed by Google pretty well: http://news.google.com/news?um=1&tab=wn&client=opera&hl=en&hs=Qnj&rls=en&q=Kyogle+flood&ie=UTF-8&scoring=n
AFAIK, The only (human)death that occured during the flood was near Mullumbimby. Source
The photos i took on the 5th & 6th are available here: http://dd32.id.au/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=10
