Mobile users on Vodafone in Queensland will no longer be able to keep their families up to date as the entire Vodafone network in Queensland has been knocked out due to the severe floods in some parts of the state in recent days.

All major townships were suffering voice and data outages since 9:26am in the morning (Sydney Time). Areas include the Brisbane Metro and CBD, Ipswitch and Toowoomba.

“From 11/01/2011 at 9:30am EST┬áVoice and Data services for customers will be partially unavailable due to flood and storm damage,” the company wrote.

Vodafone has not been able to issue an ETA on when the network would be fixed, with the exception of Brisbane Metro as they estimate the service to be restored at 2pm Sydney Time; or any temporary solution to those affected by the floods. One Twitter user has been told that they should check in 24 hours.
