Local Disaster Co-ordinator, Alan Rogers has advised that as a response to the heavy rainfall today in Caloundra and other parts of the Coast, Sunshine Coast Council is setting up a small-scale Co-ordination Centre.
Rainfall of 90mls at Caloundra and Golden Beach Area has affected approximately 20 roads in the area,” Mr Rogers said.
“Water levels are fluctuating and with a forecast of heavy rainfall throughout the afternoon motorists are asked to consider the need for travel.
“Parents picking children up from school are particularly reminded to proceed with caution.
“Motorists are reminded when entering flooded areas to avoid flooded roads. Do not cross a flooded road.
If it is flooded – forget it.
Council’s Facebook site at www.facebook.com/SunshineCoastCouncil will be updated regularly with information about road closures.
