Issued at 12pm, Friday 13 May 2022

A severe weather warning and numerous flood warnings and watches remain current for Queensland with more rainfall expected.

Rain is expected to continue across south-east and central Queensland today and possibly Saturday.

With many catchments already saturated, there is an increased risk of significant rises to creeks, rivers and streams and dangerous and life-threatening flash flooding, with localised landslides also possible.

Numerous Flood Warnings are current across the state, including:

  • Major Flood Warnings for the Condamine River, Logan River, Warrill Creek and the Bremer River and Laidley and Lockyer Creeks with the potential for continued impacts for communities including Laidley and Warwick.
  • Minor Flood Warning for the Lower Brisbane River with the potential to impact some low-lying suburbs.

Damaging surf and locally damaging winds may develop on the south-east Queensland coast today.

Due to the evolving nature of the situation, it is very important that people closely monitor the forecast and warnings.

Communities in these areas are advised to stay up to date via the Bureau’s website (www.bom.gov.au/warnings/qld) and the BOM Weather App and follow the advice of emergency services.
