Monsoon storm leaves city under water

Breaking Earth News
PARTS of Townsville disappeared under water yesterday as a fierce monsoonal storm hit the north Queensland city, flooding homes and blowing down trees.

The tropical low that brought widespread flooding to the region on Sunday and Monday crossed the coast south of Townsville early yesterday and dumped more than 100mm of rain on thecity.

The rain caused flash flooding, and strong winds blew down trees, damaging roofs and cars.

Acting Queensland Emergency Services Minister Andrew Fraser warned residents of the small, flood-prone town of Giru, south of Townsville, to prepare for severe flooding overnight.

A flood warning was declared for the Haughton River and it was expected to peak at Giru about 3am today.
