Roads closed as Queensland drenched

Parts of the sunshine state received more than 200mm of rain in 24 hours, with more on the way.

The Gold Coast and suburbs on the New South Wales border were hardest hit with 214mm of rain recorded at Binna Burra and 202mm in Lower Springbrook.

The Gold Coast would continue to feel the most pain over the weekend with parts of the area expected to receive another 100mm of rain over the next few days.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a flood warning for coastal catchments from Maryborough to Logan.

RACQ’s Renee Smith said many Queenslanders should plan for a weekend indoors.

“Flash flooding is already being seen in many towns on the east coast with roads closed from Brisbane right up to Maryborough,” Ms Smith said.

“We advise motorists to avoid any unnecessary travel in these conditions.

“Overnight emergency services rescued four people whose vehicles were swept away after attempting to drive through floodwater.

“We can’t stress it enough – if it’s flooded, forget it.

“It doesn’t matter how deep you believe the water is, you never know what’s happened to the road underneath. Even a small amount of water can move with extreme force and push vehicles off the road.”

Ms Smith advised motorists who needed to travel to check their path before leaving home.

“If there is somewhere you need to be, check for road closures before you head out,” she said.

“When on the road – slow down, turn your lights on and leave extra stopping distance between you and the car in front of you.”
