Ex-Tropical Cyclone Owen dumps more than half a metre of rain in north Queensland
Ex-Tropical Cyclone Owen has dumped “incredible” and “very intense” rain over parts of Queensland’s north tropical coast, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says.
Since being downgraded to a low yesterday afternoon the system has tracked south-east and brought torrential rain and thunderstorms to several towns, with levels now confirmed by BOM as “record-breaking” for the Hinchinbrook Shire.
The heaviest totals overnight were at Halifax east of Ingham, which recorded 681 millimetres in the 24 hours since 9:00am yesterday. Read more
