squid squiddy that is me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/SunshineCoastWeather This is our facebook page with updated weather conditions and warnings. We cover from Rockhampton to Emerald down to the NSW border
When it went through us at Jimboomba it dropped 12.6mm in 30 mins at max rain rate of 68.3mm, with the worst in the first 5 mins. It was an interesting drive to pick the son up from school, but when I got the camera out for the trip back home it had stopped raining more or less, and the water had mainly drained off other than a few places that normally have the pools of water in the rain had them.
Edit: wind gusted up to 33.1 kph

yes swamp-lady, its amazing the difference between the airport and in town measurements. I would guess we got over 40 here where I am. I didnt get my gauge out in time (but will check with my next door neighbours in the morning). Reports on facebook of flash flooding in the usual places.
