More than 40 roads across Queensland remain cut following widespread rainfall and flash flooding.
RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said areas between Bundaberg and Gladstone recorded their highest October rainfall ever, including Bundaberg’s 519.8mm since the start of the month — seven times their monthly average.
“We have seen unprecedented levels of rainfall in recent days. Miriam Vale has recorded 512mm in the past week alone,” Ms Ritchie said.
“Unfortunately we have seen people doing the wrong things and driving into flooded roads forcing swift water rescue crews to risk their lives to retrieve them.”
Ms Ritchie said some parts of the Bruce Highway remained cut and with more rain predicted across the weekend the list of road closures could continue to climb.
“We can’t say it loudly enough to drivers never, ever enter a flooded road – it’s just not worth the risk,” she said.
Ms Ritchie said once the rain had subsided the next concern to motorists would be road damage and debris.
“We’ve already had reports of roads and culverts damaged in the heavy down pour. Engineers will have to assess the roads before reopening them so the closures may remain even after the rain has stopped falling.”
