“We’ve already seen a lot of rain and with a monsoon expected to swing back towards the region later in the week bringing more, the best option, is to avoid unnecessary travel,” Ms Hunter said.

“If you must be on the road, look at our Road Conditions website before you leave home. If you do come across a flooded road, never attempt to drive, walk or ride through it.”
