The Veronicas member reveals that she had stocked up before rising water levels trapped her inside her mum's Brisbane home with no power.

star Jessica Origliasso is stranded at her mother's house in Australia after the country was hit by some of its worst floods on record. The singer, whose twin sister and bandmate Lisa is currently overseas, was able to stock up on supplies before rising water levels trapped her inside her mum's Brisbane home with no power.

Origliasso tells Austereo radio, "We headed out yesterday and stocked up as much as we could. We were actually told that our area wasn't going to lose power so we prepared a little, but it suddenly went out, and we're not sure if it will get turned back on - it probably won't for a fair few days."

The rocker insists her friends, family and home are safe, but her musical gear may not have fared so well in the crisis. She adds, "We have a warehouse that's going to go under that's got a lot of musical equipment. It's a bit unfortunate we weren't able to move it in time. That's okay, possessions can be replaced - it's people that can't."

Thousands of homes have been wrecked and at least 19 lives have been lost in the Queensland floods.
