The aftermath of ex-Tropical Cyclone Jasper in Far North QLD has led to the region’s worst flooding crisis on-record. Flood levels in the Daintree River reached 15 metres on Monday, while in Cairns, levels have now exceeded the previous flood record set in 1977. In today’s deep dive, we’ll get you up to speed on this developing crisis, and explain what it means for the state’s new Premier, during his first week on the job.
