RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said the deluge had already forced traffic changes on several major roads due to flooding.
“We’ve seen flash flooding on parts of Vulture Street and Kingsford Smith Drive in Brisbane, which caused delays for commuters making their way in this morning,” Ms Ritchie said.
“Regional roads including the Landsborough Highway, Maryborough-Cooloola Road and Roma-Taroom Road have also been closed.
“It’s important drivers never risk it by attempting to cross a road that’s been inundated. If it’s flooded, you need to forget it – simple.”
With wet conditions forecast to continue into the weekend, Ms Ritchie urged drivers to reconsider their need to travel.
“Rain and flash flooding can cause roads to change quickly, so it’s important you’re across the warnings and plan your journey accordingly,” she said.
“If you’re getting behind the wheel, take it slow and steady, and pop your lights on so you’re visible to other drivers.”
