Over the last four days parts of Southern Queensland have seen a weather event that has dropped massive amounts of rainfall across the southern state.
Brisbane river at the city reached 3.85m this morning which fell short of the 2011 flood of 4.45m. Bremer River at Ipswich reached 16.72m and fell short of the 2011 flood of 19.4m and
Logan River at Waterford peaked at 10.4m.
Rainfall totals were generally over 400m in most places with some places reaching over 1200m across the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
On the Sunshine Coast, the Nambour area was hit the hardest with totals over 970mm. Caboolture was hit the hardest with totals over 1100mm.
The rest of the week should see showers and storms with a chance of some heavy falls on Thursday which may enhance the flash flooding status that has started to affect parts of southern Queensland since last a week.
