Creeks rise, 110mm recorded in overnight drenching

MORE than 100mm of rain pummelled parts of the Gympie region last night leaving some residents stranded at home this morning.

To the south west of Kilkivan, 110mm reportedly fell at Mt View at Cinnabar, while 90mm near Glastonbury was enough to make crossing Glastonbury Creek impossible this morning.

Officially Gympie received 31mm in the past 24 hours from yesterday until 9am this morning according to the Bureau of Meteorology, Kandanga received 67mm, Borumba Dam 55mm and 51mm fell at Imbil.
