Video footage shows Bundaberg flood damage

Aerial footage has captured unbelievable scenes from the Queensland city of Bundaberg in the aftermath of flooding caused by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald.

As water levels began to recede yesterday, the city went into clean-up mode and soldiers and rescue workers began to investigate properties affected by flooding.

The footage depicts a house which had drifted onto a road, a collapsed bridge and a pile-up of abandoned cars.

It is believed that thousands of homes were affected and many of them will be uninhabitable.

The total damage caused by the flooding is estimated to be about $200 million. Prime Minister Julia Gillard was in Bundaberg today and said she had "seen some remarkable sights" on the ground.

It's been good to see with my own eyes and hear from the community their own stories," she said.

Six people have been confirmed dead in the Queensland floods and there are concerns this number may rise.
