Here are todays obs for Toowoomba: www.bom.gov.au...
We had less than that last night down Caboolture way, and I was amazed at the flash flooding happening around us.edit on 10-1-2011 by zenius because: edit
Seven people are dead after a raging torrent of water swept through the city of Toowoomba in south-east Queensland this afternoon.
Heavy rain caused major flash flooding and landslides in the Darling Downs city, with more than 160 millimetres of rain falling in the region over the past 36 hours - most of it falling on an already saturated catchment.
At Murphys Creek in the Lockyer Valley a man and a male child had also died, after being washed away in, or from a house, Ms Bligh said.
