Heavy rainfall leads to closed roads and flood warnings

RAINFALL in excess of 150mm in the past 24 hours across the Sunshine Coast and Gympie has lead to road closures and a flood warning for the Mary River.

The southern parts of the Coast copped the wild weather the most, with Caloundra's Sugarbag Rd recording 153mm in the 24 hours to 9am Sunday.

Golden Beach had 104mm, Palmview had 120mm and Tanawha had 122mm.

It was enough to close several roads around the Coast in Buderim, Chevallum, Eudlo, Forest Glen, Nambour, Palmwoods and Yandina.

Inland and more northern parts of the Coast and Gympie all experienced less than 100mm of rain.

Gympie itself had only 39mm 

The rain was enough for the Bureau of Meteorology on Sunday morning to issue a flood warning for the Mary River.

It noted small stream rises were occurring across the upper Mary River catchment from continued showers overnight and during Sunday morning.

Minor flooding was  occurring along the Mary River between Dagun Pocket and Tiaro, including Gympie.

Minor flooding was rising at Gympie during Sunday morning, with small river rises during Sunday expected to reach around 8 metres during Monday.

Small stream rises below minor are occurring along Six Mile Creek.

Minor flooding also continues along the Mary River between Fishermans Pocket and Tiaro.

Minor to moderate flooding was expected to be occurring in Tinana Creek at Tagigan Road during Sunday morning, with below minor rises further downstream at Bauple East during Sunday and into Monday.
