The South Burnett Local Disaster Management Group has downgraded its readiness status after meeting at 9.00am on Saturday.
With the easing of the rain, they have moved to “Stand Down”.
However, a Council spokesperson said Council crews would continue to work over the weekend to ensure roads were closed and monitored as water continued to run downstream.
“We ask the community to be patient with road repairs and re-openings over the coming days and some delays are expected, particularly with bridge inspection requirements prior to reopening,” the spokesperson said.
“The Council and the Transport and Main Roads network has received extensive damage again, given this is now the region’s fifth weather event in the past eight months.
“Council has requested another activation for emergency repairs and restoration of public assets.
“The community is asked to follow road closure signs.
“Increased flows could be expected on Barambah Creek as outflows from Bjelke-Petersen Dam increase. If it’s flooded forget it.
“Evacuees from the Twin Gums Caravan Park returned to the park (on Saturday) morning.”
