Energex site lists planned power outages:
Listed alphabetically by suburb, includes streets. Use as a guide only.
You can also search for unplanned power interruptions, of course if you don't have power you probably already know and won't see this anyway...
Brisbane Suburbs at risk of flooding:
However, there are suburbs already flooding that are not on that map.
BCC Council web page is now simplified with just flood related info, you can access a flood map for your suburb:
I could not find useful information to see what that risk meant in relation to all the rising river numbers, but the following helped me to figure it out.
If you scroll down, you can see a table that shows the river heights in historical floods, including 1974. This is for lower Brisbane.
Here you can see the latest measurement of river heights.
Here is the flood warning, which shows predicted river heights - looking similar to 1974.
Not sure if that will help anyone, but it helped me so I thought I'd share.

Financial help and other assistance for people QLD wide:
Also - check your local council website. Ours has a media/press release section which detailed the numbers to call locally for various things - none of which has been mentioned in the media. Things like evacuation centres (we didn't know there were any), who to call to help clean up (like disinfectant etc which you really can't do yourself), where you can get emergency medical supplies, etc etc - none of this was on the main site, so we didn't know any of it until I came across the media/press release section yesterday.

Also - a lot of companies and government departments are helping people out - for example, if your car rego is due, you now have the option of paying only for three months, or not paying and having the late fee waived. Telstra is offering free phone redirection etc. If you have a bill due, check out their website.
