    A SEVERE storm warning for southeast Queensland has been cancelled but weather forecasters have renewed their warnings for residents to brace for heavy rain.
    Places likely to bare the brunt of the wild weather include Hervey Bay, Gympie, Toowoomba, the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Ipswich and the Gold Coast.

    The heaviest rain was over Stradbroke Island and the far southern parts of Moreton Bay just after 9am.

    Rainfall totals are between 35mm and 40mm an hour.

    Hotham Creek near Beenleigh recorded 182mm and Dunwich on Stradbroke Island recorded 141mm in the 24 hours to 9am.

    A flood warning remains current for coastal rivers and streams from Rainbow Beach to the NSW border and adjacent inland catchments.

    Several roads have been closed due to flooding.

    Police said there is water over Moggil road at Taringa and Toowong.

    Region braced for flash flooding
    FURTHER flash flooding has been predicted for areas north of Brisbane, with severe storms predicted for the northern Sunshine Coast and Gympie areas.

    Pullenvale and Brookfield are also affected, with reports of localised flooding.

    The heaviest falls experienced this morning include 109mm at Mount Tamborine, Hotham Creek 130mm, Norwell 122mm, Laheys Lookout 97mm, Benobble Alert 92mm and Steiglitz Wharf with 127mm in the six hours to 8am.

    The Bureau of Meteorology issued a flood warning this morning to warn residents on the Gold Coast, Albert and Logan catchments to prepare for wild weather.

    The Queensland Police Service has warned motorists against crossing flooded roadways with several affected by rising water and heavy rain.

    Coburg Rd at Canungra, the causeway at Tamborine-Oxenford Rd at Wongawallan and Days Rd at Coomera have all been closed by police following heavy rain this morning. (near where i live!!)

    Police have issued further warnings for road closures at Donaldson Rd, Rocklea, between Dunn Rd and Collinsvale St.

    Drivers have been urged not to drive through the area and to travel via an alternate route.

    Roads have also been closed at Hardys Rd, Mudgeeraba, Upper Ormeau Rd at Kingsholme and Mirambeena Drive at Pimpama due to water over the road.

    Clean-up crews are working to clear mud debris and water from Beams Rd, Carseldine, but motorists are warned to expect delays.

    Dangerous road conditions and localised flooding in the Mount Mee section of the D’Aguilar National Park have forced the closure of the park temporarily.

    Meanwhile, the Bureau has warned of further stream rises across coastal and inland catchments between Rainbow Beach and the NSW border, with localised minor flooding still being felt on the Sunshine Coast at Paynter Creek, Diddillibah.

    Authorities have warned Queenslanders they face the most severe weather conditions since last year's devastating floods and cyclones.

    Hughenden, in the northwest of the state, received a taste of it on Sunday night, with a storm that dumped 34mm of rain in just 10 minutes, similar to falls that devastated Toowoomba last January.

    Hughenden storm Jan 22

    Hughenden experienced a storm like no other, blowing wind gusts of around 170 klm/hr. Several homes lost whole roofs whilst power was cut to the whole community.

    The storm produced winds of up to 170km/h, a destructive force usually seen only in Category 3 cyclones and rarely in inland regions.

    Rainfall of up to 400mm is tipped to fall over the next six days along most of the state's coastline with the southeast expected to receive the heaviest falls.
