Moreton Bay City Council has opened four evacuation centres across the city for people affected by today's flooding. See the details here

There is a growing number of roads closed across the City of Moreton Bay as heavy rain lashes South East Queensland.

Among them is Young’s Crossing Rd at Joyner and Petrie.

A severe thunderstorm is continuing to affect parts of the city with 224mm recorded in 24 hours at Caboolture, with more than 150mm in surrounding areas. Upper Caboolture has seen an additional 64mm of rain between 9-10am. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued another severe weather warning as at 10am.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman says there have been eight rescues across the City of Moreton Bay since last night, including at Bray Park and Samford where people's homes were surrounded by rising floodwater and they needed to be evacuated.

The SES has so far received 97 calls for assistance across Queensland since 5pm yesterday, with 59 of those call outs for the City of Moreton Bay alone.

A flood watch remains in place.

Power is out in many suburbs including Bray Park, Bellmere, Upper Caboolture, Wamuran, Mount Nebo and Kurwongbah.

Impact on Caboolture Hospital

Due to localised flooding and heavy rainfall within Caboolture and surrounding areas, road closures are affecting access to Caboolture Hospital for staff and patients.

A Caboolture Hospital spokesperson says there is no risk to the safety of patients, but a code brown emergency response has been issued, meaning ambulances will be diverting some patients to alternate emergency departments. 

The Caboolture Hospital Emergency Department will remain open for existing and arriving patients, and the hospital will operate as usual.

The Caboolture Satellite Hospital will close at 3.30pm today due to staffing impacts, while Kilcoy Hospital continues to operate.

Places of refuge

Moreton Bay City Council has released a list of current places of refuge at libraries across the city.

To stay up to date with warnings, road closures and refuge lists, head to council's disaster dashboard.

Current track closures

Due to severe weather across the city, there have been multiple track closures, with trains terminating at Petrie station.

A Queensland Rail spokeswoman says there has been significant flooding across the tracks at Bray Park, resulting in track closures and rail bus replacements for stations between Strathpine and Petrie.

There has also been reports of a fallen tree on the overhead lines, affecting stations between Caboolture and Nambour, with a 30-minute delay for the Caboolture, Redcliffe and Sunshine Coast lines.

Update: Queensland Rail has confirmed that repairs have been completed at Bray Park, with train operations resuming as usual at 12.18pm. 

Road closures

TMR road closures as at 2.45pm.
