Scenic Rim floods with welcome rain
HEAVY rainfall across the Scenic Rim region this week has resulted in some water over local roads.
QT photographer Rob Williams took a snap as Teviot Brook burst its banks at Coulson, near Boonah, overnight with water continuing to flow across the Beaudesert-Boonah Rd this morning without making it impassable.
The QT has been told by Boonah residents that a section of Ipswich-Boonah Rd was blocked on Thursday night, due to the storms that rolled through the region.
Moogerah Dam recorded 50mm of rain in the storm, adding to the 29mm that fell on Wednesday evening.
Closer to Ipswich, Bundamba and Karana Downs recorded falls exceeding 30mm, but figures around the 25mm mark were common.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Sam Campbell said more heavy rain was possible this afternoon.
Mr Campbell said a surface trough from the north-west would bring the chance of severe storms and falls exceeding 15mm.
The best chance of heavy rain will be on Saturday afternoon and evening.
"In isolated areas we could see falls of up to 50mm," he said.
"There's also a chance of hail and people should keep an eye on the warnings throughout the afternoon."
