In brief: APNIC staff soldier on in Brisbane

Centre expects moderate impact from flooding

The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) has advised its members that services will continue despite the flooding in Queensland.

In a statement released on the APNIC website, the centre said that based on current information, its office and other co-location facilties will only be moderately impacted.

“Therefore, at this time we expect no significant impact to our services to members," the statement read.

"APNIC has activated its business continuity plan, which is designed to minimize the effects on APNIC services and helpdesk availability during emergency events.”

However, the statement also said phone support is limited and will become unavailable if the main office infrastructure is affected by rising water.

“Contact to staff other than helpdesk personnel will be impacted, as most staff are working from home. Please use our email services where possible.”

According to weather forecasts, the flooding in Brisbane is expected to peak in the early hours of tomorrow morning.
