Logan City Council urges residents and businesses owners to exercise caution over the weekend as moderate flooding is expected to impact some suburbs.

The Bureau of Meteorology says rainfall totals of up to 90mm have been recorded over the last 24 hours in the Logan and Albert river catchments.
Minor to moderate flooding is expected tonight and into Saturday along all reaches of the Albert River and on the Logan River downstream of Yarrahappini and Maclean Bridge.
