Cars navigated flooded roads on Queensland’s Gold Coast on January 18, as heavy rains forced the closure of several thoroughfares.
The Bureau of Meteorology said many parts of south-east Queensland had received more than 100mm of rain, with some areas receiving over 300mm in 24 hours.
The bureau had earlier warned of “life-threatening flash flooding,” as dangerous thunderstorms hit the Gold Coast.
