Cyclone warning downgraded

A CYCLONE is now less likely to form off the Fraser Coast, but the Bureau of Meteorology is warning winds up to 90kmh are still expected about the island this morning.

The low pressure system that caused yesterday's torrential rain is now about 90km off Fraser Island and moving north east at 9kmh.

The Bureau of Meteorology predicts the weather system will move out to sea and could move north.

The Fraser Coast Disaster Coordination centre is warning people to expect localised flooding from run-off, even though the rain has eased.


The Mary River dropped to 4.8m at 6am today, but is likely to rise again tonight to about 5m. The Granville Bridge is now open but the Lamington remains closed.

Major flood levels are occurring along Tinana Creek with levels expected to reach up to 12m at Teddington Weir - above the 1992 flood levels.

Levels at Tiaro are expected to continue rising and will remain above 11 metres until late tomorrow at the earliest.

Maryborough-Hervey Bay Road is now open.
