Floods hit QueenslandBack to list
More rain is on the way for Far North Queensland, already drenched from its worst flood in more than a century.
Villages along the Daintree River north of Cairns were cut off by road, power and telecommunications after the area copped more than a month's worth of rain within 24 hours over the weekend.
The Daintree River peaked at almost 12.6 metres on Saturday night to break a 118 year record after a 500mm soaking.
Australia's far north will have to wait until next weekend for the deluge to end a 90 per cent chance of rain forecast for Cairns every day until Saturday.
