The BOM mentioned on the radio this morning that they still expect the Low to cross the coast between Cairns and Townsville, more likely closer to Cairns. The highway is cut at Frances Creek. No trip to Bilyana for me this weekend. frown

Can anyone tell me if the roads are cut between Port Douglas and Cairns? My daughter has been up there for a few days and is supposed to be driving down today to collect my Mother from the airport late this afternoon and bringing her up to Yungaburra to spend Christmas with us. It bucketed down up here all night and still pelting down this morning.

Thanks Brett Guy. I'll keep an eye on the RACQ road closures as well. The Gillies Range tends to get lots of landslides when it comes down so heavily.

OK, thanks for that, roundthebend. It is a bit of a worry as she is only 18 and not an experienced driver, especially in these conditions.

No the low isn't over us yet. The 500mm is um 'predicted' to fall over us not at sea.
Light showers here 1mm since 9.00am

After STC Altheas all the pole houses above what is now Bessel Lodge where nothing but floors. All the walls and roofs just blew away. Council has done a lot of geo stabilisation of the bigger boulders after 2002 but that won't stop a lot of the smaller stuff from moving down hill. Mt Stuart had a couple of major landslides as well. One took out the rear perimiter fence of the ammo dump but none directly impacted on any populated areas from memory.

It always makes me laugh when you see so called smart people building on the worst possible locations.

Castle Hill; Decomposing granite. Land slips

Annandale: Salt marsh and flood plain. Very high water table

Fairfield Waters: Mangrove swamp and salt marsh Very high water table

Queensland Police Service Road closure advice, Bruce Highway, Townsville area:
Motorists are advised that the Bruce Highway is closed between Rollingstone and Ingham due to flood waters. At this stage it is unknown when it will be open. Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes

Hi everyone, first time comment.
Just want to say the feeds here are more reliable then TV and sometimes BOM, followed the January feeds and thanks to your info I opted to return to the Ville before the road cut.
If I had followed the TV reports I would have ended up camping on the Bruce HWY. Good Job !

If this Low crosses at Cairns or further North as suggested by the BOM, I'm guessing that would mean we won't see huge falls?

Yep. Startin to look like it will be the southern half of the north tropical coast that could see the heaviest falls. BOM however still seem to have the heaviest falls located between Tully and Townsville so maybe they know something we don't

I guess that's where the heaviest falls will be because of convergence? I would still expect to see a few hundred mm in total through the Herbie Burdie over the Xmas weekend.
