In the past twenty four hours Mackay has seen the worst flooding in fifty years with over 600mm (0.6 metres – that’s almost a third of the annual average) recorded at some places. Many houses have been flooded and the highway is cut both sides of the city. Luckily the flooding did not coincide with a big tide otherwise it may have been much worse. I have spent the day at home waiting for the power to return and enjoying a kayak on the flood waters out the back.
