Now Brisbane gets flash flooding
Its been raining for 2 days solid now here in Brisbane. Lots of localised flooding. Luckily for us we live on a hill so it all runs off but its got to go somewhere..
Ive bailed out the pool twice now to stop it over flowing.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicts heavy rain across the city today, with localised flooding possible in low-lying areas where the ground is already saturated from weeks of steady falls.
Brisbane City Council this morning advised residents in flood-prone areas that sandbags were available at depots around the city.
The bureau's top rainfalls for the past 24 hours were recorded in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, with West Bellthorpe recording 343 mm, and Maleny 337 mm. Brisbane Airport had 85.6mm and Everton Hills, in Brisbane's north-west, had 188 mm.
