Evacuation warning

POLICE and emergency services are advising people in low lying flood prone areas of Esk, Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley area to evacuate to higher ground.

There is another severe weather event heading for the Sunshine Coast and Esk in the next few hours and it is possibly as strong as the weather that hit today.

The rain is then due to move towards the Toowoomba district and the Lockyer Valley area later this evening.

Members of the public are urged to keep off the roads and avoid any travel.
