Flooded





Our rainfall for areas on the coast has broken records for the amount of rain received in a 24 hour period for any month of the year, not just August. We received 193 mm (7.6 inches) of rain overnight Thursday night, whilst further up the coast at Rainbow Beach, they had 713 mm (28.5 inches) that same night! Over the past week we've had 420mm (16.5 inches), and Rainbow Beach has had 940 mm (37 inches).
It's very wet around here.

This is Maroochydore Rd, between my place and the Bruce Highway. Cars are just starting to get through.


Same place, just showing a bit more of the scene.


These next 4 photos were taken from the local newspaper site to give a better idea of just how much water there is around here.

This is Kunda Park, close to where the first 2 photos were taken.


Crosby Hill Rd, on the other side of the mountain, one of the main roads into Buderim.


Beside the highway, near the Caloundra turnoff.


The Bruce Highway, just south of the Ettamogah Pub.

Wow Kate! Sure is wet! I hope you aren't too wet. We live on a hill so when the valley looks like this we are pretty dry! Except for those creeks!
