Federal support agency Centrelink has told its customers to expect delays in some of its online services over the next few days as it bears the strain of the Queensland flood disaster.

in brief Federal support agency Centrelink has told its customers to expect delays in some of its online services over the next few days as it works through the consequences of the Queensland flood disaster.

"Due to increased demand as a result of the Queensland floods, there may be delays with some services. We apologise for any inconvenience," the agency said on its website.

ZDNet Australia asked Centrelink if it had special provisions in place to deal with the huge influx of flood-affected customers, but we had not received a response at the time of writing.

So far, the flood disaster has driven thousands from their homes and workplaces, with 10 confirmed dead.
